CliniKids is a not-for-profit centre integrating world-class research with a clinical service for children with developmental delay and/or an autism diagnosis, and their families. It is the first of its kind for autism in Australia.
One of the unique aspects of CliniKids is the integration of clinical services with cutting-edge research. Our exceptional team of researchers work in collaboration with our clinicians to give the community access to the world's best evidence-based therapies.
Some children on the autism spectrum have difficulty coping with uncertainty in their environment or change to routines.
Without support, these concerns may result in clinically significant and ongoing anxiety difficulties.
We are trialling a new group program for parents or other primary caregivers that helps families understand how to support and manage their child’s challenges with uncertainty in everyday environments. This may help reduce children’s anxiety in these situations.
Who can take part?
Parents of young children (aged 4-7 years) on the autism spectrum with anxiety concerns.
