Transitioning students with autism and related disabilities back to school after extended absences can be tough. Big transitions are difficult for these students whether they are due to school closures from pandemics, weather-related issues, or extended medical leave. This presentation will focus on specific strategies to help these transitions go more smoothly. It will cover evidence-based practices for preparing students to return to school and to make their transition most successful. In addition, it will include processes for troubleshooting issues that may arise in the return to school. Finally, it will touch on effective communication strategies for home and school, to help facilitate a positive return.
