Training Description

Target Audience: Experienced ASD Teachers

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.

Training Objectives

Participants will be able to:

1.    Review strategies to put in place before the student(s) return to school, to help prepare them for a successful transition.

2.    Identify how to modify classroom environments and routines to help students with ASD and related disabilities successfully return to learning after an extended absence.

3.    Discuss methods of collaborating with team members to determine areas of concern, prevent miscommunication with families, and brainstorm strategies for troubleshooting issues, that may arise during the transition.
