The 2nd Annual eSpecial Needs Halloween Photo Contest

Finding ways for children with sensory and mobility needs to enjoy Halloween can be difficult, but that hasn’t stopped our incredible customers from creating some amazing costumes. When we asked for photos last year during our Halloween Photo Contest, we received over 350 awesome entries showing off just how creative and inventive parents can be. In fact, we had so much fun seeing what everyone came up with, we’ve decided to do it again this year!
