Disability Pride Month Tidbits: Inclusive Halloween Costumes!
It’s Halloween and major retailers are FINALLY coming around to inclusive Halloween costumes for children! Target’s calling them ‘Adaptive Costumes,’ Amazon has them under ‘Wheelchair Costumes,’ but many individual parents and the nonprofit Walkin’ & Rollin’ have been rocking their children’s costumes out of necessity to help their children understand their wheelchairs or other adaptive equipment is not a burden and can be just as, if not more, fun for Halloween! Check out the following links for really cool inclusive Halloween costumes:
