Playground Scavenger Hunt

Outside speech therapy scavenger hunt.  This is a great way to engage students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the outside environment.


The weather has been beautiful here, so during our social language group, the school social worker and I took our students with ASD out for a playground scavenger hunt!  We had so much fun!

First, we made a scavenger hunt schedule for each student.  They needed to find each piece of playground equipment on the playground and check it off their list.

We encouraged the students to play with each other and wait for friends at the end of each piece of equipment.

After the students completed the scavenger hunt, we went back inside and worked on our conversation skills.  The students asked each other, "What was your favorite piece of playground equipment?"  This is a skill we have been focusing on for months now, and the students are getting MUCH better at directing questions to each other and orienting themselves toward each other.  They are even getting better and asking and answering the questions without visual supports!

All in all, it was a fun day on the playground!

  1. What an excellent activity Jen! It combines the elements of auditory processing, social pragmatics, expressive language and multisensory stimulation. So simple and yet so complex at the same time!
