Blue Buckets assist kids who are nonverbal on Halloween.
Many parents that have children with autism may feel that participating in Halloween can be a challenge. Although some obstacles may arise, all hope is not lost! Omairis Taylor, a staff sergeant stationed in Honolulu, raised awareness and hope by sharing with others through Facebook that her autistic non-verbal son would be carrying a blue bucket while trick or treating. Carrying a blue bucket indicates that the child has autism and is non-verbal. The outpouring of love, relation and support from Taylor’s Facebook post was overwhelming. People from all over the world related to her and shared similar experiences about their own children. The article even suggests using other colored buckets for Halloween trick-or-treaters to represent different causes or identifications like food allergies or epilepsy awareness. Thank you, Taylor, for bringing light to this!
