Hallowe’en Social Story

We at AsIAm understand the stress and anxiety Hallowe’en can cause for autistic people of all ages. The environmental triggers of lights, fireworks and costumes are difficult to avoid. We also acknowledge, however, that autistic children have just as much a right to be out on Hallowe’en as their neurotypical peers. With this in mind, we’ve provided this social story for parents to give their children an idea of what to expect.

From all of us in AsIAm, Happy Hallowe’en!
