A new effort will help people with special needs feel more at ease when they get on a plane.

"ROC Your Flight" is a partnership among the Rochester International Airport, the Arc of Monroe County, and the TSA. It helps passengers and their family members learn what services are available to them when they travel before they fly.The program teaches people about security screenings--and that they can board the plane earlier.

"We have a process where that if you're going to come to the airport and you need special accommodations, we want to help you. We will get you through," said John McCaffery, who is Rochester's TSA Security Director.

"I think it's really just establishing a relationship between the individuals, the families and the process here at the airport," said Barbara Wale, who is CEO of the ARC of Monroe County.

A course is being held this weekend.  More courses are planned for the spring.
