Children with special needs and their families are invited to a special photo session with Caring Bunny in an environment set up to support the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of children with all abilities. Many steps will be taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for children’s cherished visit with the Bunny. The subdued environment is likely to include (specific elements or aesthetics may vary):
- Turning off in-mall music, stopping escalators located near the photo set, dimming the lights and shutting down fountains for the duration of the event.
- Eliminating queue lines through the use of a numbering system whereby guests approach the set when their number is called.
- Special activities geared toward the needs of the child during the ‘wait’ period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.
The photo session will take place in the Lower Level of the Nordstrom wing.
Caring Bunny is an opportunity for children with special needs and their families to enjoy a photo session with the Easter Bunny. Extra care has been taken to support the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of children so they can enjoy this wonderful holiday tradition. The program is sponsored by AbilityPath.
