How do you approach the holiday of Halloween? What would you wish for your special needs child?
Back in the day of young Elizabeth, I would have ensured that "Trick or Treat" time was:
- during daylight hours
- on a weekend or a Friday
Trick or Treating during the day would help her handle strange costumes and sounds, because she could see them.
Trick or Treating on a weekend or Friday was because fatigue would be reduced: either due to the fact that she did not have school that day and she could prepare, or that if she got very tired and overwhelmed, the next day would be a day off and she could decompress.
