Provincial - ‘Feel Better Box’- A toolkit for school-aged children with anxiety and autism
Autistic children are twice as likely to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder compared to their neurotypical peers. This workshop will provide brief, solution-focused strategies to support parents in helping their school-aged children cope with symptoms of anxiety. They will be given practical strategies for teaching emotional awareness, emotional literacy, and improving coping skills. Parents will be given ideas of “tools” to create a “Feel Better Box” for their child.
This workshop is appropriate for families and caregivers of autistic children aged 6-12, as well as professionals working with this population.
Register now for this online session. The Zoom Meeting information will be sent to you following your registration.
