Tackling Anxiety in Autism: Bridging the gap between research, practice and policy




Online registration is now closed. If you plan to attend but have not yet registered please email who can confirm if spaces are available.

The Autism Research Group at City, University of London, is pleased to announce a series of free public events. These events will bring together practitioners, researchers, clinicians, policy makers and individuals from the autism community to discuss strategies for tackling some of the most pressing needs of autistic children and adults and the people who care for them.

The first event in the series will focus on Anxiety in Autism.


Speakers will include Dr. Mikle South (Brigham Young University), Dr. Jacqui Rodgers (Newcastle University) and Dr. Sebastian Gaigg (City, University of London), who will provide an overview of current knowledge and evidence about the likely causes of anxiety in autism and their implications for effective treatment.

Helen Cottell and Jane Crawford (West Sussex County Council) will provide an overview of the role their team of advisory teachers play in supporting children with autism, their families and schools in relation to the challenges that arise in the context of anxiety, and David Walton (Northamptonshire NHS Trust) will outline post-diagnosis treatment options for adults on the autism spectrum. Structured discussions in the afternoon will aim to identify the most pressing issues that need to be addressed in relation to anxiety in ASD.

All three events are free to attend but spaces are limited so please register for space using the Sign Up button above.
