Halloween is a favorite holiday for adolescents; they get free candy AND a chance to dress up as their favorite character... What could be better? The only issue is Halloween, especially Trick or Treating, presents many possible problems that might be challenging for students with autism to solve. This activity was created for adolescents with pragmatic language challenges, to help them be more socially appropriate and safe on Halloween. Halloween scenarios are provided and students must either decide what to Say or Do in the situation or identify What Went Wrong
I have included two different ways to complete this activity: You can either have your students role-play or discuss the problem as a group, or you can have them write their responses.
