Resources for Moving with a Child with Autism?

We are preparing to move in the coming months and I’m a little nervous about how both of my children are going to react to the situation. My oldest (9) is already starting to get anxious about living a new house, in a new room, in a neighborhood and going to a new school. The good side is that we are moving to the neighborhood next to my sister’s so our kids will be able to play together more frequently. However, I still want to arm myself with resources to make this as smooth of a transition as possible.

If you’ve moved, how did you handle it and how good/bad was the process? If you know of any resources I’ll take those, too!
