The transition from elementary to secondary school is challenging for all students as a number of environmental, social, psychological, and physiological changes are imposed on them. These challenges often have a significant effect on typical students but may have an even more profound effect on students with Asperger Syndrome (AS) due to the nature of the disability. This article outlines the numerous difficulties that students with AS may encounter during the transition to middle and high school. In addition, a range of specific supports and strategies are offered in order to assist students with AS in making a successful transition.
