Do you find it difficult trying to move a child between locations or activities?

Perhaps you want to decrease the distress change can cause them?

Are you wanting to find helpful ways to prepare children for upcoming change?

In this short course, you will gain an insight into autistic thinking and learn practical ways in which you can:
• Effectively prepare a child for change and decrease their anxiety
Support them through transitions, whether this is daily movement between locations or a big transition such as moving to a new school.
Sometimes it can be a struggle helping a child move into a new environment or travel from A to B. This can be because unknown, sudden changes or differences in routine can be very unsettling for autistic children.
With our understanding of autism, we know that their often different experience of communication, social interaction and sensory processing can leave them feeling part of a very unpredictable world.
If more change is happening around the child, this can be confusing and distressing. They may find it difficult understanding what the new changes around them are and why they are happening.

This can of cause lead to anxiety and distress. Preparation is extremely important.

To learn about how to effectively support these changes, I invite you to join the course
Help Me Understand Transitions
In this course you will gain an insight into autistic thinking and therefore why transitions can be particularly challenging for some children and young people. Whether it’s smaller movements such as changing rooms, or bigger transitions like moving to a new classroom, this course will provide you with the methods to help.

After the course you will have:

• A range of evidence-based strategies and tools to support children and young people understand transitions. 
Skills to help children cope and be fully prepared for the changes that will occur.
The ability to support autistic children in feeling calm, confident and less anxious.
