What is Facing Your Fears?

Facing Your Fears (FYF) is a group intervention program for children and youth with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) or anxiety who need assistance managing anxiety symptoms that interfere with daily life. FYF uses a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) approach for the reduction of anxiety symptoms and management of worries and phobias.

Why is this useful?

  • FYF addresses specific fears and worries that interfere with daily life at home and school
  • Regular parent involvement for part of each session ensures progress and support for participants
  • Teaches children important skills for managing fears and worries

Who can participate?

Children and youth ages 7-14 and their caregivers can participate in FYF. Children should have intellectual functioning within the average range, read at a Grade 2 level, and have an anxiety or ASD diagnosis.

An intake interview will be scheduled prior to the program to ensure suitability of participants and to review expectations.
