The purpose of this study was to compare parent and school personnel perspectives regarding transition needs and approaches for youth with ASD. The findings provide insight into: (a) parents’ and school personnel's desired outcomes; and (b) a tension between developing consistency and routines as well as the ability to adapt to changes and participate in novel experiences or situations. These findings raise important theoretical questions related to our current approaches to working with these students.
