Posted on 10/02/2018

City of Akron residents who wish to participate in "Trick or Treat Night" may show their support by turning on their porch lights between 5-7 p.m. that evening. Akron police patrols will pay special attention to children and families who are walking in neighborhoods.

Not everyone does well with Trick or Treat.  Below is an APS-generated resource for some strategies. Occupational Therapist Rosemary Warther (APS) tells us that, because many folks do not analyze stress points of big events such as this in the way a therapist might, she offers this help.

"If I can help one kid or family who has never participated in a community event before like Trick or Treat because they didn't think they could handle it, don't feel safe, or sense too much stimuli; and they read this flier, use a strategy and had a fun time, then HOORAY." (Rosemary Warther)
