What the Hal? Halloween Safety and raising awareness for autism with blue Halloween buckets

Keeping a child safe is always a parent’s top priority. And on Halloween night basic activities like trick-or-treating could be hard. It was a mother in Hawaii whose Facebook post went viral when she came up with the idea of using blue buckets for kids with autism or who are nonverbal, like her 3-year-old son. A blue bucket is to help those giving out candy know that a child may be autistic, so they may not say the traditional 'trick-or-treat' when you open the door.

Our guests include Tamra Mariott and Rebecca Zornitsky from Autism Speaks, Dr. Rishma Chand a pediatric intensivist at Dignity Health Northridge Hospital, Alissa walker from Curbed LA, Juan Capdet and his son Jordi and Amy Gurango and her son Benjamin.
