Beating Anxiety

By Davida Hartman, Illustrated by:Kate Brangan

Many young people on the autism spectrum

struggle with anxiety, but did you know there are

lots of simple things you can do to tackle it?

This illustrated book will help you to identify what

makes you anxious, and contains heaps of

activities to calm your body and mind, stop

unhealthy anxiety building up and head off

anxious feelings in the future. Did you know that

giving your anxiety a silly name (like Dr Dread!)

will give you power over it? That pretending you

are a jellyfish can make your body feel better?

That writing your worries down and jumping on

them as hard as you can will help to squash


Ideal for children and young people aged 8 to 14,

the ideas in this book will help you feel less

stressed at home, at school and with friends, and

give you healthy habits and coping techniques to

last a lifetime.
