TSA Cares is a helpline that provides travelers with disabilities, medical conditions and other special circumstances additional assistance during the security screening process. Call (855) 787-2227 prior to traveling (72 hours in advance) with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint. You can also send an email to TSA-ContactCenter@tsa.dhs.gov . Click here to read more.
Travelers requiring special accommodations or concerned about the security screening process at the airport may ask a TSA officer or supervisor for a passenger support specialist who can provide on-the-spot assistance.
To ensure your security, all travelers are required to undergo screening at the checkpoint. You or your traveling companion may consult the TSA officer about the best way to relieve any concerns during the screening process. You may provide the officer with the TSA notification card or other medical documentation to describe your condition. If you have other questions or concerns about traveling with a disability please contact passenger support. For more information on specific disabilities and medical conditions, click here.
It is Westside Regional Center’s (WRC) mission to empower people with developmental disabilities and their families to choose and access community services that facilitate a quality of life comparable to persons without disabilities.
Through the DDS Disparity Funds Program, WRC was able to produce videos to provide consumers, families, and communities with equitable access to information on regional center services, supports, and resources.
