The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program allows people with non-visible disabilities to access the support they need more readily in airports.
1.3 billion people globally are estimated to live with disabilities. Examples of non-visible disabilities include those with neurological, cognitive, mental health and other physical conditions.
The sign on bracelets and lanyards given out for free, prompt trained airport staff that these passengers need more time or assistance navigating through the ticket line, security, through the terminals, in bathrooms and at boarding.
This program is being used in Santa Barbara, Seattle, Portland and Denver airports.
