400,000 children, in Canada, and 4 million in the U.S. identify with having a disability that may prevent them from Trick-or-Treating with their siblings and other kids because of something as simple as stairs. This Halloween, consider setting up a treat station at the bottom of your stairs on your sidewalk to make trick or treating accessible to all.
You can download a sign HERE and place it on your front lawn promoting Accessible and Inclusive change. One that tells families in your neighbourhood that if their child has a disability, they are welcome to experience Halloween without barriers at your home.
Here’s a DIY Option: Print two of your own on 8.5 x 11 pages, put them back to back on a stick, and stick it on your front lawn near the front entrance to your yard.
Stay safe and have a fun time!
