In partnership with CARD (Center for Autism and Related Disorders), Chuck E. Cheese’s is offering Sensory Sensitive Sundays at ALL of its New York locations to benefit families with children with autism and other special needs, beginning this Sunday, Jan. 8 from 9-11 a.m. before the restaurant opens to the general public.
**This is not a sponsored post, I was provided with the information regarding Sensory Sensitive Sundays at Chuck E. Cheese and wanted to share.**
The joint sensory-sensitive event offers an opportunity for children to enjoy games, pizza and prizes in a calm and safe environment that includes:
- Less crowds and noise
- Dimmed lighting
- No show, music, or radio playing
- No Chuck E. mascot or other costumed characters walking around
- Food and games are offered but parents are permitted to bring snacks for their children if needed due to dietary restrictions, gluten allergies, etc.
- Trained and caring staff
Sensory Sensitive Sundays will occur on the first Sunday of every month from 9-11 a.m.. Due to New Year’s Day timing, the program begins Sunday, Jan. 8 and then resumes on Feb. 5, Mar. 5, Apr. 2 and May 7.
Note: This program is in 54 restaurants across New York, New Jersey and New England for now, but with the goal of rolling it out nationally later this year, if successful.
