Halloween Tips for Kids With Autism

1. For those not able to say Happy Halloween or Trick-or-Treat, try these cards made by TACA here.

2. Go for a simple costume (avoid masks or capes).

3. Help explain the concept of Halloween with the following movies: Casper, Halloweentown, or It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

4. Sensory-friendly party at home!

5. Don't confuse your nighttime routine, go trick-or-treating right after dinner.

6. Create and neighborhood map and have your child cross them off as you go.

7. Go with friends your child loves!

8. Carry a flashlight and/or earplugs to ensure your child doesn't get over-stimulated.
