Why: Many individuals with autism struggle with anxiety issues. This can amplify the symptoms of ASD and trigger self-management struggles such as behavioral difficulties, aggression, and self-injury. If the anxiety remains unmanaged, it may interfere with an individual’s ability to function at an optimal level and can negatively impact family functioning. By using a multimodal relaxation approach, individuals with autism, across the lifespan, may experience fewer challenges due to unmanaged anxiety. Come and practice some relaxation strategies that can be used by individuals of all ages.
