Sunflower Lanyard for Hidden Disabilities
Not all disabilities are visible – some, such as autism, chronic pain, dementia and anxiety are not immediately obvious and noticeable by those who are not familiar with being around persons who have these.
Hidden disabilities include learning difficulties, mental health problems as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing deficiency.
To CAP inclusion matters in all areas of our operations being for travelers or its own employees and community members. The Hidden Disability Sunflower Lanyard initiative, which is an international initiative executed at airports around the globe, enables someone with a hidden disability to choose to be visible so that support, understanding, assistance or just a little more time may be compassionately and respectfully given when moving through an airport.
How it works
Wearing a sunflower lanyard and badge at CUR International Airport enables staff to recognize that a person has a hidden disability, and that this person may require additional help, time or assistance when moving through our airport facilities. However, please note that this lanyard does not automatically provide fast-track access through security or passport control.
