With Halloween upon us, please try to be accepting of all of the folks who will be visiting your homes. Keep in mind:
The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have poor fine motor skills.
The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy may have motor planning issues.
The child who does not say trick-or-treat or thank you may be non-verbal or have speech delays.
The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl may have food allergies.
The child who isn’t wearing a costume may have sensory processing issues or autism.
The big boy who seems a little older may be an adult with developmental delays.
Choose your actions and words wisely. Be nice. Be patient.
