Quicken Loans Arena, the home court of the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James, gets loud. At a high point during the 2015 finals, the decibel level hovered around 101–about as loud as a nearby jackhammer.

But if you’re a fan with autism, or with an illness like Parkinson’s or dementia that makes you especially sensitive to sound, you couldn’t even set foot inside the arena.
