MindBalance for ASD

8-week treatment program designed to help individuals learn to identify and deal with anxiety

Anxiety disorders are common among children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In fact, up to 70% of individuals with ASD have a co-existing mental health diagnosis like anxiety, depression, ADHD or OCD. While medications can be helpful in managing symptoms, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be a more effective treatment over the long-term and helps to prevent relapse.

MindBalance for ASD is a 4 week program that builds on proven interventions such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), HeartMath® and Facing Your Fears. This program is designed to help individuals aged 10 and older learn to identify and deal with anxiety using evidence-based coping tools and strategies.
