Children with ADHD, Autism, and other related conditions often struggle with accompanying anxiety. Many times anxiety is expressed as fear or worry which often negatively impacts behavior, communication, and ability to focus.
If you think of anxiety as a separate “thing” trying to take your peace of mind and happiness, you can begin to see how anxiety is the “monster” causing this feeling. The best way to get rid of something that is trying to hurt you is to push it away. Children can imagine it through their own thought process or with guidance. For this reason, I did not add a visual to this packet.
BE SELECTIVE This is not for very child; be aware of how you approach the issue and who it’s suited for. I have had great success using it for many children I have worked with, but at the same time, I've been selective. Sometimes it works to visualize and create something non-threatening.
