Autism and anxiety workshop to be held in Mississauga

October 15, 2016 by  

Social and new situations alike can be stressful for a child or adult with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and a workshop has been planned for Mississauga that will teach caregivers skills they can use to help them cope with this anxiety.

The What Really Works: Dealing with Anxiety and ASD seminar, which is aimed and parents, caregivers and support workers, can help them develop a greater understanding of causes of anxiety in those with ASDs. Along with this, it will teach them strategies they can pass along to the individual to increase their coping skills. A print company can be called upon to produce a variety of informational materials for distribution to those who take part in workshop like this.

There is no charge to take part in this training session, and light refreshments will be provided. Only 20 spaces are available, so its organizers have recommended anyone who plans on taking part to register their interest as early as possible.

The workshop will be held on December 7 at Kerry’s Place Autism Services, which is located at 65-6535 Millcreek Drive in Mississauga. It is scheduled to run from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm.

An opportunity to register for the workshop, as well as further details about it and the other services offered by Kerry’s Place can be found on its website.
