Autism and Managing Worries
Autistic children and young people are more likely to experience anxiety than their non-autistic peers, this anxiety can also be experienced more intensely and more often than other children. Managing anxiety includes identifying anxiety triggers and recognising anxious feelings. It is also important that we develop strategies for managing anxiety, this often includes relaxation techniques, use of structured environments and visual supports. Strategies to help your child or young person manage his or her worries can be an effective anxiety management tool. This includes techniques such as worry time and worry jars. 
This training will 
•    Help to understand common worries experienced by autistic children 
•    Provide strategies to support children communicate and express their worries
•    Offer increased understanding of concepts such as worry time and the use of worry jars
•    Encourage how to support a child to release worries
