Transition Planning and Some Good Resources

  1. We are deeply into transition planning for difficult child - both at school and at home. We have found two books that have been very good resources. Interestingly enough, one of them was recommended by an young man with Asperger's Sydrome who is a member of another ListServ that I frequent.

    One is"Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum" by Chantal Sicile-Kira (and a forward by Temple Grandin), and the other is "Becoming Remarkably Able" which is a transitional workbook. Both are simple, straightforward books with information that many of us already know. But, it has been reassuring to me to see all of this information put together so comprehensively in one place.

    Wow, I wish I had access to these books years ago! The information within them would have prevented (or eased) a lot of anxiety and worrying on my part. It also would have prevented some of the conflict caused by my unrealistically high expectations that difficult child would never have been able to meet.
