Help My Transitions

How to help autistic children manage transitions and change

Sign up for this course ended on 30th November 2021


Does your child get upset with change or when something is finishing?
Are you looking for ways to decrease the distress change can cause them?

Sometimes it can be a struggle helping a child move into a new environment or travel from A to B. This can be because unknown, sudden changes or differences in routine can be very unsettling for an autistic child.
With our understanding of autism, we know that their often different experience of communication, social interaction and sensory processing can leave them feeling part of a very unpredictable world.
If more change is happening around the child, this can be confusing and distressing. They may find it difficult to understand what the new changes around them are and why they are happening. This can of cause lead to anxiety and distress. 
In this course, you will gain an insight into autistic thinking and therefore why transitions can be particularly challenging for some children and young people. Whether it’s smaller movements such as moving to a different room, or bigger transitions like moving to a new class, this course will provide you with practical methods and resources to help.
