KEYNOTE: Anxiety, Autism & ADHD

These slides were developed for a keynote talk at New Beacon School’s conference in March 2023.

Here’s the session overview:

Anxiety, Autism and ADHD: Practical Ideas for Understanding and Supporting 

Join Pooky to explore why anxiety is such a common feature within the ADHD / Autistic communities.  We’ll consider the steps we can take to prevent and manage anxiety for these groups as well as exploring a range of skills and strategies that children and young people can take to support themselves.  Many of the ideas shared are also suitable for neurotypical children (or adults), so this fast-paced, resource-rich session will have something for everyone.   

If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.

Here are the slides for the plenary session about self-care:
