Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!This post will be probably fairly short, by comparison to my recent posts. But I am curious, what Halloween is like for your differently-abled children.

Obviously, it isn’t overly accessible activity, meaning that it is something that will require assistance. The assistance required is generally because getting to up front doors is virtually impossible in a lot of cases. For me, it had always meant Trick or Treating with someone else and allowing them to press the doorbell for me, because I couldn’t physically get to the door.

Please share in the comments below how you make Halloween inclusive for your child with cerebral palsy.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Hi Laura,
    When I was a kid I was in the same situation. I actually enjoy Halloween a lot more now that I am an adult– no need to dress up, and I can answer my own door, talk to the kids and admire their costumes.
    Happy Halloween, hope it is a fun time!
