Understanding and Addressing Anxiety with Autistic Children

Children on the autism spectrum may experience significant anxiety which can impact their own lives as well as the dynamics within their families. Because of the unique way that anxiety combines with autism, triggers and symptoms of anxiety can be difficult for families to anticipate and address—resulting in misinterpretation of common expressions of anxiety and preventing effective intervention.

In this workshop, participants will learn to recognize and understand anxious patterns among children and adolescents on the spectrum. Parents will be educated about effective treatment options and will practice powerful and innovative techniques to effectively reduce anxiety at home.
