With Halloween upon us, please keep in mind, a lot of little people will be visting your home. Be accepting. The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have difficulties with fine motor skills. The child who takes a while to pick out one piece of candy may have motor planning problems. The child who does not say “trick or treat” or “thank you” may be nonverbal. The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl of candy might have a food allergy. The child who is not wearing a costume at all might a sensory processing disorder. Be nice. Be patient. It’s everyone’s Halloween.
