Parent plans Easter event for people with special needs

Peter Thoune in costume as the Easter bunny. Thoune will make an appearance at an Easter event in Springtown for people with special needs.

Crystal Childers has made an observation: special needs kids don’t seem to benefit as much from Easter events that include children without special needs.

“You have all the other kids running in and grabbing all the eggs, and then you have the special needs kids that are slower or in wheelchairs and not able to get up there, and all the stuff is gone before they're able to get anything,” Childers said.
