Individuals on the autism spectrum frequently struggle with anxiety, but parents and teachers don’t always recognize it for what it is.

Why?  Because students on the spectrum experience anxiety differently than neurotypical students.  

What are the triggers we sometimes overlook? What are the unexpected reactions anxiety causes? What approaches are best for supporting these students at home and in class?

Join us to find out how anxiety may be affecting your child on the autism spectrum, and what you can do to help.

Our guest speakers will be:

 Jonathan Dalton, Ph.D., licensed psychologist and founder and director of the Center for Anxiety and Behavioral Change (CABC) in Rockville, MD.

Jeremy Pedneau, a 28-year-old autistic adult living in Montgomery County with his parents and working as a piano tuner. 

Questions:  If you would like to submit questions in advance, please do so when you register, until Dec. 11. Your questions will let our presenters know what you are most interested in. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.  We cannot guarantee your specific question will be addressed, but we always do our best.
