Sensory Room

Creating a Calming Space for Individuals with Needs
shutterstock_136137347-Converted-(4).pngAir travel can be overwhelming and overstimulating. Pittsburgh International Airport wants to support passengers who are in need of calming or de-stressing at any point in their travel experience. Our quiet sensory-friendly space will provide an environment to help you or your loved one “re-group” and transition peacefully to the next stage of your journey.

To gather input on sensory room design and features, the Airport is hosting a public event in which individuals with sensory processing issues or other needs, caregivers for those with needs, and other interested stakeholders are invited to come and contribute insight and ideas.

Date: Wednesday, April 25
Time: 5:30 – 8 p.m.
