A Summer of Transition for Kids with Autism

Posted: May 31, 2010


Dr. Jennifer Symon, who works with teachers, speech therapists, and other special needs educators, explores some ways to help a child with autism transition from one school year to the next. She shares some tips on using time in the summer to prepare your child for the following fall.

First, talk with the current teacher to find out how the child learns best – be it with a picture schedule or behavioral program – and utilize that over the summer and share it with next year’s teacher. Next, meet with next year’s. Find out how she likes to work with children with autism and discuss any special needs connected with your child; keep her informed over the summer of your child’s activities. Try to meet some of the other parents and allow the children time to get to know each other other; meet at the park, for lunch, or have a group art project where everyone can participate. Finally, prepare your child. Visit the new classroom, create a photo book of places around the school, such as the lunch room or library. If you can, share with your child some of the lessons and activities he will be learning.
