The spookiest time of year is upon us!
Here are some ideas on how you can support an inclusive, safe, stress-free environment for those with disabilities.
Try a trunk or treat, place a trunk, bowl or other container out with treats.
Lower the spooky music to a level it is not overwhelming
Keep flashing lights at a minimum
Allow individuals to engage in their own way
Do not force a Happy Halloween or Trick/Treat not everyone speaks
If a child is too scared to come to the door, go out to them
Remember some people may support the bucket program so please be mindful and show your support by recognizing their buckets color
Blue bucket is to support an individual who may be on the Autism Spectrum
Teal bucket is to support those who may suffer from food allergies
Purple bucket is to support those who may be diagnosed with epilepsy
Most important patience and understanding is a great way to support all in having a safe inclusive night out!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, we hope you a wonderful and safe time!
