Transition Planning for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Transition Planning for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Introduction

Individuals with ASD frequently have difficulty with the unknown and may fear the unpredictable. It is difficult for them to take in all of the information within a new situation, determine what the expectations are and then generate appropriate responses. As a result, transitions are often difficult for individuals with ASD and Asperger syndrome and may result in increased anxiety and inappropriate or resistant behaviors.

This issue of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Series provides an outline of various transitions for students with ASD.
