Dd1 has huge worries and anxiety issues. She has a dx of autism and is now 8 nearly 9 years old.
We are seeing pead, and hoping to ask for CBT, I know she would like to try meds (I'm not sure).
Any help? What'd worked for your kids?

What worked for DSs anxiety was getting rid of his Moro reflex. Also AIT.

And also the more obvious stuff like hot baths before bed, lots of exercise and lavender on his pillow.

Also the ASD outreach lady explaining to him that the voices he heard in his head was just his inner voice.

He saw CAMHs for his anxiety and they did not help at all.
