“Relaxation Strategies”

Presentation created by: Marlene Breitenbach

Presentation Overview
One strategy for addressing anxiety in individuals who deal with this challenge, including those with ASD, is to teach relaxation strategies that the individual may use “in the moment” when he or she is facing a situation that causes anxiety. Unfortunately this is often more difficult than it sounds. The PowerPoint presentation below may provide some helpful information if you are working with a learner who experiences anxiety, or assisting school personnel who are looking for some strategies to support a learner dealing with anxiety.
