About the Author

Melissa L. Trautman, MSEd, is a special education teacher with several years of experience working with children with autism spectrum disorders. She is the author of My New School: A Workbook to Help Students Transition to a New School and co-author of the 2011 One-a-Day Hidden Curriculum Calendar for Children.


Melissa Trautman has an amazing understanding of students on the autism spectrum and the anxiety even the smallest change can cause them. Written for the student, My New School is an interactive workbook that is full of practical activities designed to demystify the transition process, making it more predictable, manageable, and less anxiety provoking. What a wonderful resource for students, parents, and teachers alike!" -Terri Cooper Swanson, Ms Ed, assistant professor and autism spectrum disorder certificate coordinator, Pittsburg State University, and co-editor of Autism Spectrum Disorders

"As a parent, how I wish I'd had this book for my daughter when we relocated a few years ago! As a middle school teacher, I have observed how Ms. Trautman's book has helped students manage their anxiety about changing schools. Whether by a parent or a teacher, My New School can be used to help children transition more successfully to a new school." -Lisa Farnsworth, Ms Ed, teacher of a center-based program for students on the autism spectrum

"A few years ago we were compelled to move our son with Asperger Syndrome to a different elementary school. My New School could have eased our situation immensely. As the child fills out the pages of this workbook, he is guided through the events, his thoughts, and especially his feelings, about moving to a new school. The child is also encouraged to think about what is important about himself and what he wants to share with others. Parents will also be able to clarify their thoughts and determine what is important about their child and how they want to interact with staff at the new school. This workbook is great for students of all ages on the spectrum. Indeed, it can be used with any student who is going through the anxiety-provoking experience of changing schools." -Leslie Blasco, mom of a 9-year-old with ASD
