there IS an app for that! - B4 YOU BOARD

'there IS an app for that! - B4 YOU BOARD'

Hi5! Good idea! For flyers like our son who has Sensory Processing issues, just being in public is a major accomplishment--EVERYDAY! Coupled with being diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, social interaction in a public place like an airport restaurant is challenging.
In other words, to have him sit calmly playing on a smartphone, e-tablet as a distraction from ALL of the SENSORY(5 senses) activity happening around him in a busy airport, is an accommodation that is worth the PRICE OF PEACE. Maintaining our son's serenity in a non-Sensory-Integrated world is vital and a daily task. Self-Regulation only works some of the time.
Looking forward to more airports and restaurants to buy-in on this smart, user-friendly, progressive 'fast-food' ordering feature.

   'Planning Successful Events!' shared a link.
A smartphone app that is available on both iPhone and Android phones now makes it possible for travelers using the Minneapolis St. Paul International

JFK International Airport is also participating in the program, with the Chicago O'Hare Airport to jump on board this month.

To take advantage of this service, smartphone users should download the B4 YOU BOARD app, which is free.

"Life on the Autism Spectrum can be ENJOYable."
