Designed for children  (Grade 1- 6) who have anxiety and (high functioning) autism spectrum disorder including Asperger’s Disorder.  Anxiety management skills are adapted to suit the learning style of children with an ASD and the typical presentations of anxiety that are seen in ASD.  The kit includes a therapist manual, parent companion and child workbook, each with handouts, activity guides and visual supports. It is primarily targeted at children aged 8-12 but may be used outside of this age range dependent on the target child’s maturity and cognitive development.

The program is a variation of the Cool Kids© Child and Adolescent Anxiety Program. It has been developed specifically for children who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger’s Disorder and High Functioning Autism) comorbid with an anxiety disorder.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder Adaptation includes:

  • The additional skill of relaxation
  • A simplified approach to cognitive restructuring using “worry stories” and visual prompts
  • Increased use of visual supports and visual work systems to demonstrate skills
  • Visual checklists to assist with home practice tasks and exposure exercises
  • Activities for social skills development

PLEASE NOTE:  Each client requires their own child workbook and parent companion. Photocopying resources that come in the kit is a copyright infringement.   

Mid-late 2022 the CEH will be releasing the new, 2nd edition materials of the Cool Kids Anxiety Program Autism Spectrum Adaptation which will include a teen workbook version.
