Easter Bunny event for autistic children available
ASHLAND -- Children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder can have a difficult time enjoying some of the celebrations and traditions that many people take for granted, such as a visit with the Easter Bunny in a busy shopping mall.
Families who have a child with autism are invited to Ashland Town Center from 9 to 11 a.m. Sunday, April 6 to visit Sensitive Bunny, an event that caters to children on the autism spectrum.
The Bunny Garden will become sensory friendly, meaning the lights and music will be turned down, staff will be instructed to avoid loud, distracting movements and the mall will be closed to shoppers. The Town Center, in partnership with Worldwide Photography, will also provide each family a free 4x6 photo to commemorate the event.
