There are several ways to make transitions easier for your child

Despite the fact that children on the spectrum have trouble with transitions, this does not mean that they are unable to learn ways to effectively shift from one task, activity or setting to the next. As a parent, there are several strategies that can make your child’s transitions a little bit easier, each designed to prepare them before the transition occurs, as well as to support them during and after the transition. When these strategies are utilized, they should diminish transition time, increase independence and appropriate behavior during transitions, as well as create positivity around transition routines.
