Searching for the perfect costume, decorating the house with spider webs, carving a pumpkin and buying candy to give to trick or treaters, all add to the excitement leading up to Halloween night.
For many families and kids with disabilities and devlopmental needs and allergies, this holiday can be a reminder of challenges that exist for kids who can’t eat orally, have sensitivity issues or severe allergies that prohibit them from taking part in eating candy and edible treats.
To make Halloween inclusive to all kids, you can keep a supply of non-edible items that can be found at your local dollar or party supply store.
Here are some fun and inexpensive items to have on hand this Halloween:
Boomerang Health - Virtual Social Skills & Self-Regulation Group - Online

Kerry's Place - (FFS) Master Minds: A "How To" Guide To Homework (Ages 11-13) - Online
