Transitions are a large part of any school or work day, as we move to different activities or locations. Studies have indicated that up to 25% of a school day may be spent engaged in transition activities, such as moving from classroom to classroom, coming in from the playground, going to the cafeteria, putting personal items in designated locations like lockers or drawers, and gathering needed materials to start working .

Focus on:

– Why transitions are potentially challenging for individuals with ASD
– Consideration of different types of transition.
– Exploration of how we can support when things are different from
the routine.
– Discussion of challenges around specific transitions.
