Moving to secondary school is a huge moment in any young person’s life. A new school means a new environment, usually larger in size, with more complex demands and accompanied by a series of unfamiliar and potentially bewildering sounds.
For a young person with autism this transition can often be particularly challenging. Support and preparation for transition can result in a better outcome.
The videos below will support young people with autism during transition to high school by enabling them to familiarise themselves with the types of new sounds they should expect to hear, prior to arrival in the new environment.
These videos has been designed to help you get used to the different sounds you'll hear around the school. Click on each video to hear sounds from that part of the school. It's best to use headphones to get the most accurate idea of what it's like being in those places.
