Sensory Friendly Trick-or-Treat, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

The American Autism and Rehabilitation Center hosts a Sensory-Friendly Trick-or-Treat Event. This event allows us to serve families with special needs in our community who feel that their child's unique differences prevent them from participating in fall festivals or other trick or treating events. Children in Baldwin and Mobile County are invited to tour our center for trick-or-treating. Upon arrival, families will follow a set route through our facility and each child will receive candy or trinkets at every stop along the way. This set-up is ideal for families whose children tend to elope or become overwhelmed easily, and provides parents with a secure and safe place to take their children with special needs. Costumes are welcome but not required in hope that every child with sensory-processing difficulties will feel included. The employees at American Autism and Rehabilitation Center decorate all our doors in the facility, and our staff love participating and dressing up in friendly costumes. It is a wonderful evening that allows all children to participate in an event that many families without children with special needs take for granted.
