with disabilities should:

any special needs or medical devices.

child may become upset during the screening process as a result of their disability.

accomplish the screening to minimize an outburst for the child.

the process by helping you put your and the child's carry-on items on the x-ray belt.
- Know that at no time during the
screening process will they be separated from the child.
- Know that if a private screening is
required, you should escort and remain with the child during the private screening

child's' abilities are (e.g. Can the child walk through the metal detector, or needs to be
carried through the metal detector by the parent/guardian.
- Know that all no time should the
screener remove the child from his/her mobility aid (wheelchair or scooter). You are
responsible from removing the child from his/her equipment at your discretion to

of your child while he/she remains in their mobility aid, as well as a visual and physical
inspection of the equipment.
