Chuck E. Cheese's teams up with Center for Autism and Related Disorders
Chuck E. Cheese's® and Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) recently announced the launch of Sensory Sensitive Sundays, a joint event at Chuck E. Cheese's locations throughout greater New England to provide children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other special needs, the opportunity to experience the fun of visiting Chuck E. Cheese's in a sensory-friendly environment.
After a successful pilot run at the Attleboro, Mass. location in November 2016, both organizations decided to expand Sensory Sensitive Sundays to include 54 Chuck E. Cheese's restaurants.
The sensory-sensitive program provides the opportunity for families in the autism community to enjoy Chuck E. Cheese's with smaller crowds and less noise, dimmed lighting, no show or music playing and limited costumed characters, all of which makes for an environment more suitable for children who face sensory challenges.
Occurring before the restaurant opens to the general public, Sensory Sensitive Sundays will typically take place from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. on the first Sunday of every month. For 2017, these dates include: February 5, March 5, April 2, May 7, June 4, July 2, August 6, September 3, October 1, November 5, and December 3.
