Reviews

This is a great resource for parents, teachers and other professionals supporting the transition of pupils on the autistic spectrum in their move from primary into secondary education... It is a resource that I would definitely recommend and one that can be dipped in and out of as necessary, should a child be having particular difficulty in understanding a specific aspect of this very significant phase in his/ her education. -- British Journal School of Nursing
Deserving of ongoing mention for parents, teachers and educators at all levels... An ongoing, top recommendation. -- The Midwest Book Review
The transition from primary to secondary school is a major event for most kids, but MAKING THE MOVE is even more important, offering a guide to transfer for pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Checklists for parents and kids alike make this a recommended pick for parents of such students, as its fill-in workbook format offers many useful resources from blank timetables to homework diaries and more to help parents handle such kids. A specific, top pick for any parent of ASD child moving their child through the education system. -- The Midwest Book Review
