Try using visual cues, or transition cards

Some children on the spectrum find visual evidence, such as transition cards, to be more effective in easing their troubles with transition. Using a consistent visual cue to indicate when it is time to transition can help to avoid any confusion for your child and to allow them to develop familiar transition routines. For instance, giving them a visual cue, either a photo of them or any type of visual symbol that indicates “go check your schedule” can help them to match the cue with the designated location of their schedule. Upon viewing the schedule, he or she will then be able to predict the transition routine.
