This came about because of a book I made for my autistic son when he was starting school. He loved it and it made starting school easier. The new entrance teacher got me to make others over the years for other autistic children starting in her class and so I developed a template book for anyone to use.
This book covers what your child/student will need to be familiar with before he/she starts school in order to make transitioning to school easier and smoother. This book is designed for you to add photos to boxes and add text where required specific to your child/student and their new school. It’s recommended to do lots of school visits before starting. You can get some of your photos during school visits. Put the book together to support the school visits and starting school. A personal approach is more effective.
The more prepared your child/student is the better and more successful starting school will be.
Feel free to alter the text or add extra pages if needed but change the page numbering to suit. After printing cut along the centre line and staple all pages together in the top left corner.
