"Happy Halloween everybody! Have a great time out there trick-or-treating. A lot of creatures will visit your door. Be open minded: The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have motor processing issues. The child who does not say "trick-or-treat" or "thank you" might be painfully shy, non-verbal or selectively mute. If you cannot understand their words, they may struggle with developmental apraxia of speech. They are thankful in their hearts and minds, The child who looks disappointed when he sees your bowl might have a life-threatening allergy. The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have SPD or Autism.
Be kind, be patient, smile, pretend you understand even if you don't. It's everyone' s Halloween, no matter the disability."
(H3 loves you Heather)
