Vlog: Additional Needs Parenting and Halloween

In this Vlog, Mark offers some helpful tips for parents thinking of taking their additional needs child trick-or-treating this Halloween.

“Think about a child who’s autistic and who all year is told not to speak to strangers, but one night of the year suddenly all that changes they’re able to go and knock on strangers doors and speak to them and ask for sweets – but then the next day they’re back to being told, “no, you can’t talk to strangers.””
