    That is great to hear Nina,  alot of schools are getting much better at this transition period.  Also some schools already provide visual social stories for all children with images of the school, classroom and teacher.  Make sure to ask them do they provide this, if not, can they make one for your son, or assist you in making one for him to look through during the Christmas break.  If you do get lucky and get access to a image of his class teacher – we used to put that on the fridge and point to it often – this definitely lessened my son’s anxiety for the beginning of the school year.   But if not, just images of the school, classroom etc are also very good.  A photo of the Principal can also be used as a friendly face.
