Emotional health - anxiety

High levels of anxiety in children with ASD are common and it is this feeling of anxiety that might be causing some of the behaviours that you may see in your child.

Your child might be feeling anxious about something but is not able to tell you. In fact the way of communicating their anxiety is often through behaviour. Some of the behaviours you might see are:

* Tantrums and aggressive behaviour
* Becoming withdrawn and resisting any interaction with others
* Experiencing pain
* Become distressed.
