Autism Spectrum Conditions Through Everyday Transitions
May 31, 2012
By Autism Society
Facing any type of change can cause confusion and anxiety for individuals with autism spectrum conditions. This book looks at the small transitions in everyday life that can be a big deal for a child with autism and offers simple and effective strategies to make change less of a daily challenge.
Explaining why seemingly minor changes to routine can be emotionally distressing for children with autism, the book teaches practical solutions for coping with common transitions, including switching from a weekday to weekend schedule, the changing of the seasons and sleeping in a different bed when on holiday. With insights from the authors’ personal experiences and helpful scripts, signs and sketches to use along the way, this book shows that with planning and preparation you can teach your child to cope with change in a calm and more confident manner.
