With a Halloween parties and trick or treating getting under way we wanted to take a minute to share this beautiful piece that has been circulating around for a while. Remember each child is important and has their own set of strengths and weaknesses. Treat every child with kindness and love and YOU can make a difference in a child’s life!
“In a few hours, lots of little ones will visit your door. Please be open minded and accepting. The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have poor fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick a 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 apraxia of speech. The child who looks disappointed when they see your candy bowl may have a life threatening food allergy. The child not wearing a costume may have sensory processing disorder. Be kind, be patient and give a smile. It can make an incredible difference to a child with special needs. And their families. Thank you!”
