ABOUT THE Autism Eats ORGANIZATION:

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 (brunch or) 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.

MISSION:
Autism Eats provides autism-friendly non-judgmental environments for family dining, socializing and connecting with others who share similar joys and challenges.
