Something big (and quiet) is coming to Pittsburgh International Airport next week.
After months of preparation and construction, as well as input from community members, the airport will unveil a world-class sensory-friendly space for travelers with autism and other neurodevelopmental challenges.
The roughly 1,500-square-foot room features private and soundproof spaces with adjustable lighting, various calming activities and comfortable seating, a sensory-friendly restroom and a realistic airplane cabin experience area.
Stay tuned for more on this industry-leading airport amenity, with more stories, photos and videos to come next Tuesday!
