ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — While going door-to-door for candy each Halloween is easy for most children, it can be challenging for those with autism.
A viral Facebook post is hoping to spread the word that children with blue buckets are meant to alert residents that the child or teen may have autism, and may have trouble speaking.
In 2018, Facebook user Alicia Plumer shared that she was trying to make the holiday more fun for her autistic 21-year-old son by notifying neighbors that he was carrying a blue bucket.
Teal pumpkins are meant to raise awareness of children carrying food allergies.
