MindBalance for ASD 

Anxiety disorders are common among children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  In fact, up to 70% of individuals with ASD have a co-existing mental health diagnosis like anxiety, depression, ADHD or OCD.  While medications can be helpful in managing symptoms, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be a more effective treatment over the long-term and helps to prevent relapse.

MindBalance for ASD is a NEW  treatment program that builds on proven interventions such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), HeartMath® and Facing Your Fears.  This program is designed to help individuals aged 10 and older learn to identify and deal with anxiety using evidence-based coping tools and strategies.
