Wings for All Introduces Flyers with Special Needs to Atlanta Airport
Lakeya McNeal hasn’t yet taken her son Austin on an airline flight, even though she and her husband travel frequently and the 4-year-old boy loves airplanes.
“We don’t really take him because of his temperament,” she said. Austin was diagnosed last year with autism, and he struggles around loud noises, automated doors and sitting for long periods of time.
But this week, Austin got a chance to experience what it’s like being at the airport and inside an airplane cabin during a “flying rehearsal” at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and other disabilities.
