If your passing out Candy tonight...
October 31, 2013 at 2:52 PM

Tonight there will be a lot of creatures who 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 planning 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. It's everyone's Halloween. Make a parent feel good by making a big deal of their special child.

    I always do ... I love halloween and it's all about the kids.  Franly I don't care if they say thank you or not or if they even say trick or treat, I give.  We made a HUGE deal this year.  We had the best house in the neighborhood, the local paper even came by and photographed us in our cemetary.
