COVID-19 has profoundly heightened anxiety in the autism community internationally. Our families and organizations are struggling to provide a stable environment for children, youth and adults with autism spectrum disorder. Able adults with ASD are also feeling the strain.
To mark World Autism Day with a practical initiative, ACT has invited three respected mental health clinicians, who have presented for ACT on autism and mental health, to answer questions on ‘Anxiety and COVID-19’. Wherever you live in the world, in British Columbia, across Canada, or further afield, you are welcome to submit your questions. We will choose the most representative for our panelists to tackle.
Join us in a live web stream on Thursday, April 2, 2020 for a free, live web stream via Facebook live from 3:00 to 4:00 pm Pacific Time. 

Watch on Facebook or on ACT’s website on April 2nd:
