Supporting Autistic Students in the Classroom with Anxiety: Your Questions Answered Part I

1 in 36 school-age children are autistic. Autistic students are much more likely than non-autistic students to experience mental health challenges, including difficulty with emotion regulation and anxiety that may be exacerbated by experiences of bullying, victimization, and segregation within schools. There is an urgent need to support the mental and behavioral health of autistic students. The purpose of our two-part webinar office hours series is to provide overviews of how to identify and support anxiety in autistic students and to apply these strategies within case studies.

This first webinar will be devoted to identifying anxiety and other mental health challenges in autistic students. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify anxiety and signs of other mental health challenges in autistic students.
  2. Describe risk factors for autistic students to develop anxiety and other mental health challenges.
  3. Identify anxiety signs within two case examples of an autistic student.
