Henderson, NV (PRWEB) March 31, 2017
Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) today announced Sensory Sensitive Sundays, a collaboration with the Chuck E. Cheese’s location in Las Vegas, NV, to provide children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families an opportunity to experience the fun of Chuck E. Cheese’s in a sensory-friendly environment. Sensory Sensitive Sundays is scheduled for the first Sunday of each month.
“Chuck E. Cheese's has been a great partner in CARD's effort to expand opportunities for children with special needs and their families to have fun in a supportive, safe environment,” said Doreen Granpeesheh, PhD, BCBA-D, CARD founder and CEO.
Offered two hours before the restaurant opens to the general public, the sensory-sensitive program provides the opportunity for families in the autism community to enjoy Chuck E. Cheese’s with smaller crowds, dimmed lighting, the show and music turned down or off, and limited appearances of costumed characters, all of which makes for an environment more suitable for children who face sensory challenges.
“CARD Henderson is excited to team up with Chuck E. Cheese’s in Las Vegas to host a sensory-friendly event for those in the autism community,” said Briar-Rose Jacobson, administrative coordinator for CARD Henderson. “Families will be able to enjoy games, pizza, and fun in an environment tailored to their needs."
Sensory Sensitive Sundays will take place on the first Sunday of every month, beginning Sunday, April 2, from 9:00-11:00am at 9230 S Eastern Ave, Space 100, Las Vegas, NV 89123.

Cheese's and CARD across the country. A list of the 351 locations participating in the program can be found by visiting http://chuckecheese.com/sensory-sensitive-sundays.
