Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) has collaborated with Autism Inclusion Resources LLC and other autism specialists, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Transportation Security Administration (TSA), The Gray Center, and participating airlines at PHL to develop the Airport Autism Access Program.. This Program provides opportunities for children with autism and their families to become familiar with traveling through PHL, and includes Social Stories™ by Carol Gray and a simulated airport experience. (Due to the large file size, it is recommended that the file be downloaded for optimal viewing).
Family members with children with autism and airlines interested in participating in this Program may contact the following for more information:firstname.lastname@example.org.Please be aware that even though there are no simulated Airport experiences presently scheduled, anyone interested in participating in the program is encouraged to contact the Airport in order to be placed on a waiting list to facilitate administrative and processing requirements, including a security background check. The requirements must be satisfied in order to participate in the program and it is advisable to start the process at the earliest possible time.
