Even though Sunday was St. Patrick's Day, Easter is right around the corner. That's why the Sensitive Easter Bunny made an early stop at the Morgantown Mall for the first time ever.

Sensitive Santa has stopped by the mall before, but this is the first year they had a sensitive bunny for Easter. Now what that means is that children with autism were able to spend special time with the Easter Bunny. Sunday the area was turned into a "sensory friendly" zone with the lights turned down and the mall closed to other shoppers. Members from Playworks came out and provided activities and games for the children while they waited.
 
"There's not as many people. There's some activities to keep their attention while they're waiting. And it's a nice chance for them to have that picture with the Easter Bunny that they may not get to do with their child just because it's too difficult," said Lara Hartzell, Physical Therapist.
 
Families with autistic children say they're especially thankful for an event like this.
 
"We decided to visit it this year because we didn't last year and we missed lots of good stuff," Coa Clark, Participant.
 
"This is actually our first year ever visiting, so the face that we could come and spend some time with the Easter Bunny, with friends who understand him is just pretty amazing. I'm really impressed that there's something like this in Morgantown, said Leslie Crossley, Mother.

Coordinators say it's important to have events for children with special needs and they hope to make this an annual event.
