Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) struggle with change and transitions throughout the school day. This research study presents a four-step sequence for implementing transition supports, which are techniques used to support students with ASD and facilitate less reliance on adult prompting. These steps include: identifying problematic transitions; selecting appropriate transition supports; implementing transition supports; and collecting data and problem solving. The benefits of these techniques include an improved quality in a student’s school experience, as well as additional instruction time.
