PIT is proud to support the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Program. Many disabilities, such as autism, chronic pain, epilepsy, low vision, hearing loss, dementia, anxiety disorders, and brain injuries, are not immediately obvious to others. If you or someone you are travelling with has an invisible disability, you can choose to wear the Sunflower as a discreet way to indicate to our airport staff that you may need some additional support when going through the airport processes.
Does wearing a lanyard give me access to expedited security screening?
This program does not allow for expedited security screening but is a reminder to airport staff to show extra compassion, allow time for additional assistance, and let those travelling with these hidden disabilities feel comfortable and confident.
Will other airports I travel to recognize the sunflower?
The sunflower is recognized at over 180 airports worldwide. Click here to view a list of participating airports.
How can I receive additional assistance?

Where can I find a Sunflower Identifier?
Sunflower lanyards, bracelets, and pins are available free of charge pre-security at the landside information desk and post-security at the airside information desk. Requests for an identifier to be shipped in advance can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
