A program specially designed to help children with autism socialize and communicate effectively (both verbally and nonverbally), as well as to equip them with the skills necessary for a successful transition into mainstream schools.
Starting their school life in the unfamiliar environment of a mainstream school can be a traumatic experience for a child with autism. A sudden break in their normal routine, a barrage of new rules and a sea of strange new faces can lead to a world of trouble and embarrassment for an unprepared child.
In the course of our years of experience we’ve seen many of our children’s development halt, and even regress, as they struggle with the frustrations of coping with the intense societal pressure found in mainstream schools. Hence, we’ve put together a specialized program constructed with the dual purposes of not only preparing children with autism for the environment in mainstream schools; but also, to equip them with the essential social skills that would take them through school life and beyond.
The decision to enrol your child into a mainstream school is an important one. However, it shouldn’t be case of “sink-or-swim” where we throw our vulnerable children into the mix and hope for a good result. In order to ensure that it is a positive experience that will reap benefits for your child, preparation is key. This is why we’ve created the Social and School Readiness Program–because at Autism Step, we’re here for your child, every step of the way.
