Understanding & Supporting Anxiety in Neurdivergent Kids

If you’re raising a neurodivergent child, you may have noticed they have intense emotions and you’re not sure how to handle it. As we’ve talked about in previous workshops, autistic and twice-exceptional children as well as those with learning differences and ADHD can have asynchronous skills that can lead to feeling confused or defeated.

The anxiety in neurodivergent kids often goes beyond just regular worries of childhood and can manifest as aggressive behavior, arguing, avoidance, or sensory meltdowns.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to spot anxiety related to bedtime, school, tests, & social interactions
  • What behaviors look like defiance but are actually anxiety
  • How to figure out patters of anxiety and strategies to get ahead of it
  • How to explain anxiety to your child so they feel more in control
  • Strategies to support your child’s bravery and how to make decisions around situations that cause them anxiety
