Caring Bunny™ at the Mall of New Hampshire offers families that have children with special needs a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny, the largest program of its kind, has been developed by Simon and is guided by AbilityPath.org, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Over 90 Simon® properties will host Caring Bunny this season. Promotional assistance for Caring Bunny has been provided by Autism Speaks.
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.
· Hosting 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.
Cost: Photo packages vary; information can be found at the Easter Bunny set.
