Getting Ready for School - Transition to School
The transition to school can be especially challenging for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. Changes to routines, environments, activities, people and uniforms can cause unease or anxiety for individuals.
This workshop will explore the various ways you can support your child to transition as smoothly as possible into school including with orientation visits, social stories and practising at home. You will also learn about how to best advocate for your child by having a communication system in place, ensuring the best tools and strategies are used to help your child successfully transition to school.
This workshop has been designed for parents, carers and professionals who are currently supporting a child with an Autism diagnosis who will be transitioning to school in 2020.
