Halloween is a great way to get out in the community and meet your neighbours. And while a holiday that involves dressing up and getting candy is a dream come true for many children, it is not quite so simple for children with sensory issues, physical challenges, restricted diets or other disabilities and developmental needs.
Get excited and plan together as a family, letting the kids lead the way. Here are some ideas to help make your Halloween safe and fun for kids of all abilities.
Involve your child:
Have a safe and happy Halloween!
