Autism Services – Transitions Through the Day
January 25, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
As part of foundational family services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a family support coordinator after attending a workshop, to help you apply the workshop content to your specific family situation.
Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder often find that their child/youth resists changing activities through the day. Child/youth personality, anxiety, and characteristics associated with autism spectrum disorder all contribute to difficulties with transitions. This presentation covers the most common and effective strategies recommended to parents and caregivers to make transitions easier and less anxiety-provoking.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
• List challenges associated with autism that may impact children’s/youth’s abilities to make transitions
• Identify and describe 5 transition strategies and corresponding tools that can be used to support many types of transitions
• Create an individual plan to teach your child to complete one daily transition
