The purpose behind this activity is to supply
guidelines that support/prompt my autistic and other
special education students in acknowledging and
eventually having some form of communication with
others while transitioning in the halls.
Print out all the following pages:
• The 2-page” I acknowledged a…” checklist
• Acknowledging people in the hallway.
• Making eye contact, and then…. (laminate)
I then put all the papers on a clipboard and have my
student carry it with them in the hallways during
I have my student “acknowledge” at least 2
people…one going to their specials class and one coming
back from the class. Since I have some students that
only talk to adults, they have the added rule that they
have to acknowledge students only.
