Helpful Halloween

Halloween is quickly approaching and children everywhere are preparing to put on quirky costumes and devour considerable amounts of sugar. Although Halloween night can be a child’s dream, parents are often less-than-enthusiastic to spend the night walking, adjusting costumes, managing tantrums, and maintaining a safe environment for their eccentrically clad children. As a parent of a child with special needs, chances are you have added stress around holidays like Halloween, because your child has additional needs and requirements leading up to and during this special occasion. Here are a few things you can do to help prepare for the spookiest holiday of the year:

If you’re concerned about your child’s health or safety, you can choose to stay in for the night or make alternative plans like attending the PediaPlex Halloween Event to provide the fun without some of the usual concerns around this observation. You can watch a scary movie, tell silly ghost stories, or play a fun sensory game! It may be just as much fun to throw shaving cream on your kid’s face and or dig through overcooked spaghetti worms!

No matter what you decide, the rule of thumb for Halloween night is: Be safe and have fun.
