Hi all; 

I am writing for ideas and advice with regard to reducing the level of anxiety and stress experienced by young people with autism in special schools. 

I have started a new blog to disseminate the information I have researched on this topic over the last year, it is at 

Does anyone have any other suggestions that may be useful? 

I am also keen to get my research to as many people who may be helped by it. Any suggestions about how to go about doing so will be appreciated. There are already links to the blog on the websites of Oxford and Exeter universities.

Hi Nic, we have a couple of articles/resources you may find helpful around anxiety. 

There are lots of other articles that touch upon anxiety across the site too, you can search the site using our search function for key words and you should find everything we have related to your work.

Hope this helps

Can I ask why the research is related to special schools only, because the mental health of autistic children forced into mainstream is likely far worse?
