Halloween Costumes for Special Needs Children

Sure, a skilled parent with time and proper sewing equipment on hand can adapt a costume to suit a child with special needs. But wouldn't it be nice if big retailers offered them for sale, ready to go? Now they do. Biz Women reports:

Target will offer four costumes this Halloween that cater to children with special needs, including covers that transform a wheelchair into a pirate ship or princess carriage and costumes without the tags and seams that can be problematic for children with sensory-processing disorders. [...]
In April, the company added adaptive pieces to its Pillowfort kids’ furniture collection that accommodate both the need for stimulation and for calming, per Fast Company, including a foam “crash pad,” a desk chair that rocks, a weighted blanket and bean bag chairs with waterproof covers.
In addition to the pirate and princess wheelchair-friendly costumes, the Halloween line includes a shark and a unicorn costume both with flat seams and no tags and detachable parts and hidden openings to accommodate dressing challenges.
