21TRA548 Online Autism Workshop - How to Support and Treat Anxiety in Children with Autism

 

 

 

 

This brilliant 3-part workshop will discuss how anxiety presents with children and young people with Autism/ASD, and how to treat it effectively. Interventions discussed will incorporate strategies from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – i.e., gradual exposure, cognitive restructuring, and psychoeducation – as well as strategies from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)/ Positive Behavior Support (PBS) (e.g., positive reinforcement, antecedent-based/prevention strategies such as visual supports). We will discuss how these interventions that were originally applied with neurotypical children can be modified for children and young people with Autism.
