The Teal Pumpkin Project has been around for a couple of years now, but parents of autistic children have come up with a new thing that will help their kids feel included this time of year.

The color blue is the one that has become associated with autism advocacy because of worldwide events like Light It Up Blue that Autism Speaks hosts every year on Wolrd Autism Day.

Now after one parent's post went viral, kids on the spectrum now have a better chance of being seen and not excluded from all the Halloween fun.

Some people with autism may not be able to communicate just how challenging going door-to-door can be for them. While others may look like their "too old" to out trick-or-treating. Don't judge a book by its cover, their hearts are in the right place and that's all that matters.

So look for a blue treat bucket because Halloween is meant to be a fun time for all, let's make sure everyone gets to be a part of it!
