Moving Right along...Planning Transitions to Prevent Challenging Behavior
Hemmeter, Mary; Ostrosky, Michaelene; Artman, Kathleen; Kinder, Kiersten
Young Children, v63 n3 p18-22, 24-25 May 2008
The authors discuss why challenging behavior tends to occur during transitions. They offer strategies for planning and implementing more effective transitions, ideas for using transitions to teach social skills and emotional competencies, and a planning process for working individually with children who continue to have difficulty during transitions. Included are sidebars with transition tips, a daily schedule revised to include fewer transitions, and an extensive list of individualized strategies.
