Transition Planning Toolkit
In this Transition Planning Toolkit, we’ll be focusing on what transition planning can look like as well as discussing some of the needs in the autism community.
Each individual is in a different place and can benefit from learning about ideas and ways to support or seek support.
Transition planning at its core is a way to try to proactively address some of the changes that will come with graduation and build a future roadmap based on a given student’s needs. ASD students in particular have a tremendous need for this type of preparation. In addition to the challenges we all face in deciding how to spend our adult lives, ASD students must contend with societal barriers to employment, education, and community engagement.
The Lifespan Toolbox is a collection of toolkits for everyone in the autism community from self-advocates, family members, professionals, and other members of the community to get on the same page about autism and lifespan.
We span topics all over the lifespan, specifically thinking about the adulthood years (the longest span of our lives!) and how we can all work together to support the autistic person/people in our lives and community.
Research and reported experiences from autistic individuals show a need to receive individualized support regarding life skills and to be connected with others. That’s where the Lifespan Toolbox comes in!
- We have a growing library of toolkits and are adding to it on a biweekly basis. There are numerous topics to cover here!
