Ewa Beach, Hawaii – A mother created a Facebook post whic has went viral that you can read and share here HERE. In hopes of helping all children with Autism be more comfortable while Trick-or-Treating and be less stressful for the parents.
She shares her story and the struggle she faced while taking her non verbal autistic child out to get some candy last year.
Here is what she had to say in her Facebook post.
“My son is 3 years old and has autism. He is nonverbal. Last year houses will wait for him to say TRICK OR TREAT in order for him to get a piece of candy and there I go explaining the situation for the next 5 blocks. This year we will be trying the BLUE BUCKET to signify he has autism. Please allow him(or anyone with a BLUE BUCKET) to enjoy this day and don’t worry I’ll still say TRICK OR TREAT for him, ill get my mom candy tax later 😁. This holiday is hard enough without any added stress. Thank you in advance.
P.s. I have made this post public in hopes you will share and get the BLUE BUCKET message out there for Autism Awareness and acceptance this Halloween💙🎃💙🎃💙🎃💙”
