Autism transition packs

Autism transition packs

Find out about and download transition packs for children and young people with autism.

These autism transition packs have information and resources to support children and young people with Autism Spectrum Condition, who are moving to a different education setting in September 2020.

There are four sets of transition packs based on age. Each set has:

  • Bristol Autism Team transition plan
  • resources for professionals
  • signposting information for parents and professionals

The current Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) should complete the transition plan with the new SENCO and parents and carers. It’s good to start planning for transition as soon as possible. If you’re unable to meet physically due to restrictions, you may be able to have a virtual meeting. 

Someone from the Bristol Autism team can attend the meeting if the child or young person is registered with them.
Email Bristol.Autism.HotLine@bristol.gov.uk to arrange.

If the child or young person is not registered with the Bristol Autism Team, the team can provide informal advice.
Email Bristol.Autism.HotLine@bristol.gov.uk.
