Participants will be trained in how to use the Fun with Feelings programme, which is a ten-stage programme to assist autistic children aged 4-8 years old to understand and manage anxiety. Fun with Feelings is based on a deep understanding of autistic individuals, successful clinical research trials of the programme, and cognitive and behavioural principles.

Fun with Feelings was designed to be utilised by parents and carers with their child, in a home setting, but can also be delivered directly to the parent and child within a school or clinic setting. Participants are trained in each of the therapeutic activities that comprise the ten stage programme. The first five stages prepare parents to implement the Fun with Feelings programme with their child, helping them to understand the causes of their child’s anxiety and how to reduce it. The last five stages of the programme are used with the child using the Having Fun with Feelings workbook to help the child to better recognize and process their own emotions.
