"Now he's a secondary school student" : successful transition from primary to secondary school for students with autism spectrum disorder

Abstract : This thesis investigated the transition from primary to secondary school of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in France. Study 1 provided criteria for a sucessful transition. It showed that the transition is complex and affects several stakeholders. Study 2 captured the social representations of lay people on a successful transition. These are largely congruent between lay people considering or not a student with ASD. Nevertheless, differences remain and were further investigated in study 3. This study delivered results concerning the experiences and perceptions of concerned stakeholders. Moreover, it identified strategies for a successful transition, as well as barriers. The results of these studies were combined to develop recommendations for a successful primary-secondary transition for students with ASD. Due to the complexity of the transition, every recommendation has to be adapted to each case and stakeholder. Existing measures as well as the new recommendations are discussed in the context of the ambition to achieve an inclusive school system.
