The transition to kindergarten is a significant milestone for children and their families.  However, we know that transitions can be challenging for children with ASD, and the shift from intensive early intervention services to school aged services can be difficult for parents as well. This session will: 

  • Help prepare families by reviewing best practices for a successful school transition
  • Assist families to develop an understanding of school-based planning for transition
  • Provide information on IEP development and how parents can be active participants in the process 
  • Provide resources to support this critical period for children and families
