Children with autism experience anxiety in many situations, with some experiencing significant anxiety difficulties. While many reasons are shared with typically developing children, there are some key factors relating to autism that mean stress and anxiety are more likely. Everyone shows their anxiety in individual ways so the most reliable observations that a child is anxious are going to be made by the people who know the child best. This shows the importance of working closely not only within a school staff team, but also with the families of children with autism. This session is an introduction to strategies that can be used to alleviate the experience of anxiety in children with autism.
