On Halloweens past, 9-year-old Caleb McLelland has driven a backhoe with bright yellow wheels, flown through the clouds as Superman and sped into action in his Batmobile. He made all of those transformations in attention-grabbing costumes that incorporated his wheelchair.
“His chair is very much a part of him,” Cassie McLelland says of her son, who has spina bifida. “It makes sense to make it a part of his costume.”
All kids love Halloween, but for kids in wheelchairs it’s a particularly special time.
