Who is the book for?
"Meet...Me!" is for teachers and parents of children who are transitioning to a new class, a new situation, or new (and potentially challenging) environments or activities. In particular, children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder or a neurodevelopmental disorder such as ADHD, may find it especially useful.
The central message is simple...
To enable the child to have a great experience in a new class, or in fact, any new situation, to get to know the child as an individual and provide the necessary adjustments to his or her curriculum.
How the book works...
This wonderfully illustrated resource has sentence starters and tick boxes for the child and parent (or teacher) to complete highlighting the child's individual characteristics and needs. Once completed it is passed onto the child's new teacher in the transition process.
The "Meet Me Quickly" booklets follow a similar format but are intended to be passed onto sporting coaches, music teachers, etc.
Anxiety and the Autism Spectrum
This practical toolkit is ideal for teachers and parents to inform other professionals about the individual child in order to create a smooth transition to a new situation.
