Trick or Treat! Tips and Tricks to Transform Transition Time for Students with Autism


AutismThis Teaching Students with Autism webinar explored ways to help reduce anxiety and increase time on task for students with Autism during transition time. As concrete thinkers, change and transitions can be incredibly difficult for students throughout the day. The beginning of the school year is loaded with new routines, and changes that can be very difficult for students to navigate the day independently and successfully. New schedules, special events, book fairs, fire-drills, parties or holiday time can be terrifying. Webinar presenter Lauren Stafford, M.Ed, Vice President of Research and Instructional Design for Monarch Teaching Technologies, Inc., looked at breaking down several tough transitions and provided a list of tools anyone can use to make transition time terrific instead of terrifying! The presentation featured Evidence Based Practices from the National Professional Development Center on Autism, and provided examples and access to tools like VizZle that can be used to implement positive behavioral supports.
