April is Austism Awareness Month and kid's fun place Chuck E. Cheese's is showing its commitment to helping all children fit in and have fun by dedicating certain days to kids with special needs.

Chuck E. Cheese's has expanded its initiative to help children with autism and special needs enjoy their world renowned parties.

Chuck E. Cheese's will offer Sensory Sensitive Sundays the first Sunday of every month.

Select locations will open two hours early on the first Sunday of every month and cater to the needs of children with autism. The restaurant will still offer its famous food and games but will feature dimmed lighting, less crowding and noise, shows and music turned down or completely off, and limited appearance by Chuck E.

Chuck E. Cheese's tested out this new venture in some markets to great success, and that is why they have chosen to expand the effort.

Staff trained in dealing with children with autism or special needs will also be on hand.
