Most of these children are not familiar with the lights and sounds. We have to see whether the light decorations do not surprise them. The loud jarring noise will annoyed them as well.
We must be careful in welcoming the kids on Autism spectrum. When decorating home for the Halloween, let us avoid light displays that flash or strobe, and any additional loud noises, scents, or animated decorations which might distract the kids. We must be patient with kids who come to our door, and because some children may be nonverbal, we should not insist on them saying “trick-or-treat” before handing out candy.
The kids will also love to see the soft and calm costumes, some of them will prefer the good fairy or vampires which are not spooky or scary. We can try for Tinker Bell costumes to make them feel safe with the good fairy as well.
