What is school transition support?
School transition provides support for children with autism who are beginning or moving school, as well as individuals who are finishing their school years and moving on to higher education, vocational training or employment.
School transition support is designed to help children and young adults take the next step on their learning journeys.
How can I benefit from the service?
School transition support is designed to meet individual needs, identify areas where additional educational support may be required, and assist children and school leavers to take their next steps.
Autism SA supports children who are starting school for the first time, moving from primary school to secondary school, or changing schools.
Support is designed to get the best educational outcomes for children on the autism spectrum. The process can help to determine what extra support at school may be required.
School transition support may also identify technologies that can support a child’s learning, such as Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) aids.
This service can be provided in conjunction with our School Inclusion Program.
School leavers & adults
We also provide support and services for school leavers and adults who are looking to take the next step, including transitioning into higher or vocational education, or being work ready.
The Next Step School Leaver Employment Support (SLES) program offers pre-employment skills, social skills training, and hands-on practical work experience specifically designed for young adults on the autism spectrum.
