Objective: The objective of this study was to design and create a ”Sound walk Guide” for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) transitioning between primary and secondary education. Methods: A literature review was conducted on transition tools used for children with ASD. This informed the development of a sound walk guide based on a sound walk audio tool. Results and Discussion: The literature review highlighted the sensory difficulties faced by children with autism during transition. It described some of the transition tools used in ASD from online training programs to virtual reality tools. However, there was little literature on specific tools for primary to secondary school transition. This informed the development of a user-friendly sound walk guide which was developed along with children and professionals in education and health.
