This workshop acknowledges that many individuals on the autism spectrum may experience high anxiety levels that can prevent an individual from experiencing successful community participation and developing independence. The presenter will discuss the importance of identifying observable signs of anxiety at five different levels, and how a person can respond when an individual is at each of these levels. The workshop will also discuss how to support an individual to self-identify their levels and use effective self-management strategies to reduce anxiety when it is impacting their day and improve their access to the community, education, employment and friendships.

General Workshops are designed to give participants an introduction to understanding the autism spectrum and provides workshop participants with the knowledge of key strategies to support individuals in a range of settings.
In Focus Workshops are designed for participants who have a good, current understanding of autism and are looking for a more in-depth understanding relating to a particular area of the autism field. This greater knowledge in turn provides greater confidence in applying strategies to support individuals in this area. It is recommended that participants attend an Autism SA General Workshop prior to attending an In-Focus Workshop or Masterclass unless they have a good, current understanding of autism.
Masterclass Workshops are based on the concept that there is always more to learn. Masterclasses are short intensive workshops that are designed to provide participants who already have a sound current understanding of autism, with specific and extended content relating to a particular topic, strategy or program.
