Helping a child with autism make the transition from an intensive, specialized therapy setting into a classroom of typically-developing peers requires successful collaboration between school, home, and clinic. This presentation describes how our LEND students, with mentor support, analyzed the necessary steps and implemented individualized programming to help this child and the stakeholders in his family and school prepare him for a more independent future.
