Autistic children and young people can experience a high base level of anxiety every day. There are some common themes when talking about the causes of anxiety. However, everyone is different and the best thing is to get to know the child or young person you are working with.
Join us and hear from leading autism education experts to discuss the main causes and how to recognise anxiety in children and how you can help to relieve or prevent anxiety. Benefit from networking with other SEN specialists, while of course enjoying a free breakfast!
