Details:DESCRIPTION
'Autism Eats' was started by the husband and wife of an autistic child in the Boston area. They wanted to give autism families a chance to go out to eat, without any stares or any judgment.
Going to a family restaurant should be an enjoyable experience. A time to relax, enjoy good food and spend time with your family. Let someone else do the cooking and cleaning. Unfortunately, for those of us who have a child with autism dining out can be anxiety provoking and stressful. As parents, we may feel that "all eyes are on us" when our kids exhibit certain behaviors, have outbursts or refuse to sit still. Other diners may be disturbed and the well intentioned wait staff doesn't really know the best way to help out.
Many of us decide it is just not worth the effort and that is unfortunate. We created Autism Eats to bring the fun back to eating out. Our dinner parties are held in private rooms of restaurants or function facilities. Food is served buffet or family style so there is no waiting. Music and lighting are adjusted to accommodate those with sensory sensitivity. These are family dinners and all attending have a loved one on the spectrum so there is no need to apologize, explain or feel uncomfortable. It is an opportunity to enjoy a night out and socialize with others who have many of the same joys and challenges in common.

The Old Spaghetti Factory will be serving a buffet consisting of artichoke dip with lasagna, Sicilian meatballs, mizithra cheese and browned butter for the adults, ravioli, fettucine alfredo and mac and cheese for the kids. Meals will include bread, salad and a drink. There will also be a sensory friendly activities for the children such as magician, Mr. “O” Harvey Ouchi who will provide a sensory friendly magic show: no explosions, no flashing lights, no loud music—just good, old fashioned basic magic and they will each receive a sensory friendly toy.
