This webinar provides an overview of the identification and treatment of anxiety in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A brief review of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for anxiety in youth with ASD will be included as well as an overview of the Facing Your Fears program.
Part 2 of this webinar series will provide examples of how Facing Your Fears (FYF) has been adapted for other age groups on the autism spectrum as well as for other settings and treatment modalities. Specifically, we will discuss a school-based
version of FYF, considerations for conducting FYF via telehealth, and adaptations for teens with ASD and Intellectual Disabilities.
