Sensory Sensitive Sundays

Dedicated Time For Kids With Autism & Special Needs

We’re proud to support families who have children with autism and other special needs. Recognizing that the Chuck E. experience can be very stimulating for any child, we made it our mission to create Sensory Sensitive Sundays®, where we have a trained, caring staff who works to ensure everyone has a fun-filled visit. Because we believe ALL kids deserve the opportunity to just be a kid.

Participating locations will open two hours early on the first Sunday of the month to offer a sensory-friendly experience for families. 

The Partnership Behind the Program

In 2016, we partnered with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) to develop the Sensory Sensitive Sundays program. We’re grateful for the education and guidance that CARD has provided, including training materials for our staff that explain what autism is, its observable characteristics, and how to create a sensory-friendly play place for children on the spectrum.
