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

Download the presentation slides here

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 webinar will center on evidence-based approaches and practices that can be used within schools to help manage anxiety in autistic students. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe evidence-based approaches to support anxiety in autistic students.
  2. Understand different ways that mental health programming can be delivered to autistic students in schools.
  3. Identify strategies that may support an autistic student as illustrated within two case examples.
