Anxiety Management

Life for a person with an autism spectrum condition already has its challenges. Now, as the world experiences a period of uncertainty, those on the spectrum may be feeling anxiety at the sudden changes occurring. As you are forced to adapt your daily routine, stay indoors, and undertake a period of isolation from your support networks, we understand the difficulties that come with this period of transition. Feelings of fear, loneliness, and boredom can start to take over. To help you through this challenging time, we have collated some self-help resources focused on anxiety that will support you in the weeks ahead.
