Autism and Understanding Anxiety
This training course will help parents and education professionals understand the stresses autistic children and young people experience, particularly within the Primary School environment. We will discuss the external environmental demands and stress experienced by many autistic children which can contribute to anxiety experiences.
Participants will understand:
The relationship between autism and anxiety, and how anxiety affects our body and mind.
Fatigue and masking in relation to anxiety from an autistic point of view.
How environmental, communication, sensory, emotional, and cognitive stresses can be supported to reduce anxiety experience within the school environment.
During the course, we will explore a range of supports and resources which can be used to support an autistic child or young person.
