Kids And Adults With Autism Flying Easier In Pittsburgh, With Airport’s Help

A large new "sensory space" at Pittsburgh International airport is divided into separate rooms; families can tailor sound and light levels to each traveler, whatever their age.

Pittsburgh International Airport has opened a 1500-square-foot “sensory space” to help people on the autism spectrum decompress during travel. Soothing colors, and private soundproof rooms are a hit.
