Halloween Fun

This week, I’m sharing some of the fun costumes my son, Nick has worn over the years for Halloween.  Nick is 22, and has Down syndrome and autism.  It’s not always easy for a person with special needs to tolerate costumes, much less masks, face paint, or makeup. The sensory issues can get in the way of going, “all out” for Halloween.  Here is some that I’ve come up with over the year for him:

It’s possible to find, (or come up with), your own costumes for a child with special needs. We’ve had a lot of fun doing this over the years.  Nick and I wish you a safe, and Happy Halloween.  That’s what is in my noggin this week.
