Sensory Friendly Events: Providing community-based events to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disord


Sensory Friendly : Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat

RISE for Autism's annual Trunk or Treat promotes a safer and more inclusive celebration to the traditional Halloween festivity. Our event understands that individuals with disabilities of all ages may struggle or be excluded from typical trick-or-treating due to: social skills, physical accessibility, communication, allergies, etc. RISE's Trunk or Treat facilitates a lower sensory demand on guests by providing an environment with no harsh lights nor sounds, and many treats delivered in accordance with the Teal Pumpkin Project (non-edible, ex. stickers). Guests and their families can also use the event to practice the skills associated with trick-or-treating prior to the big day. Our Trunk or Treat is a family-friendly event and we encourage siblings to participate as well! Participants of all ages are welcome to join us for Trunk or Treating, games, crafts, activities, and much more!
