3 Things - Tuesday, October 24

Three ways to help everyone have a Happy Halloween.

  1. Ditch the strobe lights, scary sounds, and loud music.
    Loud or frightening noises and bright flashing lights can cause big problems for trick-or-treaters with sensory processing issues, autism, or epilepsy. Keep your décor free of over-stimulating lights and loud or scary sounds to ensure more children can visit your treat station without sensory barriers.

  2. Think about a practice run
    "If this is a new experience for your child, you may want to do some practice runs first..." A good way to do this is to have your kid practice trick-or-treating at their own home so they can get familiar with how the routine works — going up to the door, knocking, asking for candy, and saying thank you.

  3. Having an Inclusive Halloween
