Between Truck or Treat - the close of the Dunwoody Food Truck Thursday season - and actual Halloween - and the maelstrom that is Halloween @ Briers North, I wanted to post an annual reminder. At these large public events, we meet and greet all kinds of people we don't see every day. Let's use the opportunity to create some great memories for all.
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 may have an allergy.
The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have a sensory issue (Sensory Processing Disorder) or autism.
Be nice. Be patient. It's EVERYONE'S Halloween.
