Resources are provided with this practice



Adolescent-centred transition planning:

  • helps to build self-determination in adolescents on the autism spectrum
  • may improve transition outcomes.

Encouraging students to play an active role in planning for their future is important – but adolescents on the spectrum may find this challenging, especially if they experience anxiety when communicating with others. 

This practice is scaffolded to provide a 'just-right' approach to engage students with different levels of motivation and confidence in their transition planning.

This practice will help students to

develop self-determination

apply self-determination to career planning

This practice will help teachers to

promote career-related self-determination

assist with transition planning
