Anxiety in learners with autism (On Demand)
Anxiety disorders affect almost half of all people with ASD. In this webinar, we will explain anxiety in autism, what causes anxiety in this group and how to best support these students.
This webinar goes together with the next one on Emotion Regulation issues in students with ASD.
What you'll learn
Strategies for supporting anxious students with ASD
All teachers or anyone in a supporting role in education (Teacher’s assistants, Learning Support Coordinators, SENCOs, School Counsellors, Deans or Heads of Department).
Anyone who is new to ASD, as well as those needing a 'refresher', as diagnostic criteria and ideas on ASD have changed in the last 10 years.
I have always found the presenters at Children's Autism Foundation equipped with a wealth of knowledge especially with the needs of ASD being so complex and diverse. I feel the skills and strategies I have picked up have helped with all learners in the classroom and made a difference to those especially needing the extra support. These are definitely workshops that I look forward to attending and encourage others to do so too.
