Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

When you take your kids to Chuck E Cheese. You can expect loud noises, flashing lights and singing animatronic characters, but Chuck E Cheese's all around the country realize this  environment is not for all children.

"Well, we always lower the lights and turn the show off for the kids that are sensitive to loud sounds and we ask parents if they are okay with Chuck C coming out and most of them don't want him to so we keep him in the back."

Chuck E. Cheese recently partnered with the Center for Autism and Related Disorders or CARD to offer a sensory-sensitive event the first Sunday of every month from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

"It makes us happy that they are happy that they have somewhere to go on Sunday's"

On sensory Sunday's employees where these shirts that says "Where all kids can be a kid."

According to the national autistic society many people on with autism have difficulty processing everyday sensory information. any of the senses may be over- or under-sensitive, or both, at different times. these sensory differences can affect behavior, and can have a significant effect on a person's life.

The Wichita Chuck E Cheese see's the difference it's making in the lives of children with special needs and is glad to be apart of sensory sensitive Sunday's.

"Hopefully more show up in the next couple of months."
