One of the things we take for granted is our transition into activities, places, roles, and settings throughout the day. Wherever we are, transitions happen - most often naturally - as we move from one activity to another through the course of a day. However, transitioning is not smooth for everyone. For many each and every transition is perceived as a major experience. There are Students of Determination that need help with this process. At our school, GEMS Modern Academy, we use VR to help these students with their transitions. Using VR trips, virtual visitations and immersive environments we have been able to make transitions more manageable. We have also been able to add more value as we incorporate life skills as well. We are very pleased with the progress being made through these innovative interventions for our students on their road to independence.
