Middletown Centre for Autism - Autism and Anxiety Management

Middletown Centre for Autism - Autism and Anxiety Management

Post Primary aged students with autism experience anxiety in many situations, with some experiencing significant anxiety difficulties. For many, school is a major source of stress. While many reasons are shared with the full student body, 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 student is anxious are going to be made by the people who know the student best. This highlights the need for a collaborative approach between the family and the school.


This session is an introduction to strategies that can be used to alleviate the experience of anxiety in students with autism. This will include an introduction to cognitively based strategies and how to develop student-centred strategies to deal with anxiety.


Participants will:

  • Understand how the difficulties experienced by those with autism, including sensory difficulties, can contribute to the development of anxiety.
  • Understand how anxiety can escalate and may result in an outburst.
  • Develop some simple strategies to prevent the escalation of anxiety.
  • Understand the basics of cognitively based management approaches.

Course Overview:

  • Anxiety triggers and build up.
  • “On the spot” anxiety management strategies.
  • Developing a “stress kit”.
  • Cognitively based approaches and the emotional toolkit.

Please note that booking can only be done through Middletown Centre for Autism.
