Anxiety management for kids on the autism spectrum : your guide to preventing meltdowns and unlocking potential / Christopher Lynch, PhD.

By: Lynch, Christopher
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Future Horizons, 2019Description: 181 pages, 23 cmISBN: 9781941765982Subject(s): Childhood | Resources for parents | Mental health | Anxiety | Emotional self-regulationSummary: "Anxiety can be overwhelming for children with autism. It doesn’t need to be. The anxiety levels commonly found in children with autism affect social skills, memory, learning, and attention span—and often lead to meltdowns. Those who live or work with kids on the spectrum are acutely aware of how disruptive anxiety can be. However, we are rarely provided with clear guidance on how to manage this anxiety. This book bridges that gap. Through his twenty-plus years as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Lynch has devoted his career to relieving distress in kids with autism and related disorders. Lynch identifies five factors that are commonly known to elicit anxiety in children with autism and breaks down how to tackle each topic in a manageable and effective way."
