Happy Halloween

charlie-brown-halloween

Very soon, a lot of kiddos will visit your door. Please be open minded.

  • The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills or may be hungry.
  • The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have motor planning issues or a cognitive impairment.
  • The child who does not say “trick or treat” or “thank you” might be painfully shy or non-verbal.
  • If you cannot understand their words, they may struggle with developmental apraxia of speech. They are thankful in their hearts and minds.
  • The child that doesn’t answer when you talk to him or her may have a hearing impairment.
  • The child who looks disappointed when he sees your bowl might have a life-threatening allergy.
  • The child who isn’t wearing a costume at all might not be “able” to wear one due to the sensory issues of autism, or the family may not be able to afford one.
  • Be kind, be patient, smile, and try to understand.
  • It’s everyone’s Halloween.
  • Make each child feel special and make their parents feel good by making a big deal of their special child. Thank you!
