With Halloween upon us...

"With Halloween upon us, please keep in mind, a lot of little people will be visiting your home. Be 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 out one piece of candy may have motor planning issues. The child who does not say trick or treat or thank you may be non-verbal. The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl might have an allergy. The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have a sensory issue (SPD) or autism. That BIG boy, might 'appear' to be an adult, but may be developmentally delayed. Choose your words wisely. Be nice. Be patient. Its everyone's Halloween." 

I read this while browsing the internet last night and I could not help but share it with you all. It is all soooo true and very touching. Keep it all in mind for your trick or treaters! :)
