Halloween Tips For Grown-Ups

Here’s something you didn’t know yesterday.

  • School Nurse Lisa Carey’s favorite costume ever was a ghost she made herself and her favorite trick-or-treating candy was Tootsie Rolls.

  • Mrs. Howell’s favorite costume was the Grim Reaper and her preferred candy is Reese’s Cup.

  • Mrs. Montevecchi’s favorite costume was a superhero get-up involving a sparkly cape, while her favorite candy is also the Reese’s Cup.

That said, if/when you’re handing out candy on Halloween, keep these tips in mind:

  • The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may have poor fine motor skills.

  • The child who does not say “trick or treat” or “please” or “thank you” may be nonverbal.

  • The child who is looks disappointed when they see your bowl may have allergies or be diabetic.

  • The child who is isn’t wearing a costume at all may have a sensory issue or autism.

Be nice. Be patient. We are all welcome. The Hannah Community includes all of us.

Happy Halloween!
