Children with developmental delays or autism process the environment differently. As Halloween can be a sensory overload, pay attention to costume textures, headwear and loud sounds. Make sure your child knows what to expect. Don’t spend too much on a costume, as your child may not like it.

Some children have eating restrictions and can’t enjoy the treats available at every door. You can prepare your neighbors if your child has specific needs. A teal pumpkin signifies treats are available that are free from common allergens.

Listen as Dr. Barbara Saunders joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss how to help your child enjoy Halloween at the right speed.
