Transitions can be difficult for children, whether they are moving from day-care to Kindy, from primary school to high school or from being out at recess to moving back into the class for a lesson. Transitions indicate that there is a change in the environment, schedule or activity that the child is engaging in. Difficulty with transitions can manifest in a number of ways depending on the child and the setting.

It can take the form of resistance, avoidance, distraction, negotiation or a full-blown meltdown. Some of these reactions are the result of kids being overwhelmed by their emotions. Others are what they’ve learned works to successfully delay or avoid the transition. Difficulties with transitions can be due to emotional dysregulation where children have difficulties managing fear, sadness, anger, or frustration. Children aren't inherently born with these skills, they need to be shown and taught. A part of our roles as therapists, parents and teachers is to support and coach our children how to manage the many different forms of transitions they will make independently.

Proudly facilitated by Full Circle Therapies with guest speakers Cass Bender & Kasey Driver
