Providing Transition Cues for Students
Children with autism may have particular difficulty transitioning from one activity to another. Sandy Pih, an early intervention teacher discusses how providing children with cues for each transition, such as a song or countdown, drastically reduces transition difficulties in her students.
"Alot of the students come in with goals that were set by the family they would like their children to be able to transition easily. And I found by provbiding these "transition cues" that after a month, that is not even an issue any more. They (the children) begin to understand that there are clues in their enviornment as to what is to happen next. "
