This Saturday is the spookiest day of the year, and some children with autism may need additional support to connect with and to celebrate Halloween. Autism Speaks previously partnered with our READi lab team to create an “All About Halloween” personalized story template. While this template does not address new challenges associated with COVID, it does focus on traditional Halloween celebrations — like carving pumpkins and wearing costumes – as well as alternative celebrations. Knowing that creepy costumes and strange situations are just pretend is half the fun! Access this template and tips on how to use it here. Happy Halloween and be sure to keep an eye out for the full moon, boys and ghouls.
