Autism Corner: Tips for Enjoying an Autism-Friendly Halloween
[Source: ABA Learning Lab]
Halloween is upon us, and that means most kids (and some adults) are eagerly anticipating dressing up in their favorite costume and enjoying the spoils of trick-or-treating. We grab our biggest pillowcases, our parents make sure our costumes are on straight, and we go from house to house with the simple proposition… give us candy, or run the risk of exposing yourself to trickery.
For our kids with Autism, however, Halloween can be a very different and even scary experience. The good news: with some proper training and practice, we can quickly teach our kids why Halloween is so much fun!
