Provincial - ‘Feel Better Box’- A toolkit for school-aged children with anxiety and autism

 Registration is closed for this event

(English Event Only) Registration for this event opens on: May 6th, 9 AM EST 

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.

Please note that spaces are limited for this event. Capacity limits for workshops give attendees more access to the presenter and enable more opportunities for conversation.
