A group of kids with autism in Brownsville, Texas got some practice navigating their new school before the school year started. Their teacher helped with social stories and videos on a Flip video camera of the new school. In the spring, the children and their parents went to the new school late in the afternoon when it was quiet and calm. The children and their parents were allowed to visit the school over the summer as well. Other ideas to help children make the transition include driving the route to the new school, making a calendar with changing activities as the summer ends, pictures of school supplies, and beginning the fall schedule of school, homework, and bedtime.
