Next week we'll be discussing behavior analytic research on the topic of transitions. Moving from one place or activity to another can be a real source of challenging behavior with many individuals with autism and a real source of wasted time for any student. But why? And what can practitioners do to help? All that and errata including a fun discussion about what transitions we can't stand.
