Halloween is this Sunday! If you're planning to give out candy, see below.
Here are some things to remember about trick-or-treaters that may come by your home this Halloween, according to Dr. Ali Griffith:
- The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills
- The child who who does not say "Trick or Treat" or "Thank You" might be nonverbal
- The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl might have an allergy
- The child who isn't wearing a costume might have sensory processing disorder or autism
- The person who looks too old to be trick or treating might be developmentally delayed
Overall, just remember to be accepting, patient and kind this Sunday (and always)!
Be safe and have a happy Halloween!
