Texas hotel offers autism-aware rooms

A Wyndham hotel has started catering to families traveling with autistic children, making it one of the few in the USA but an early adopter in what may be a growing trend.

The Wyndham Garden Hotel in Austin, Texas, two months ago opened five specially equipped, “Thoughtful rooms” designed to make stays less stressful for families with autistic children. A door alarm, for instance, alerts adults when the door is opening, which could prevent a child from quietly opening the door and wandering out of the room.
