What is the theory behind this Autism Therapy Worksheet?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a group of lifelong developmental disabilities that causes a child to have multiple social, communication and behavioural difficulties Cognitive Behavioural Therapies can be used to help children identify and modify their faulty thinking and unhelpful behaviours. It can also be used to address any other associated issues such as anxiety, depression and ADHD. 

How will the worksheet help?

The worksheet will help children with Autism to identify how their thoughts and behaviours are affected by their emotions. CBT for children with Autism utilises the same concept as with adults but in a much more simplified form as in this worksheet. 

How to use the worksheet?

Instruct the child to pick any negative emotion such as fear, sadness or anger and fill the worksheet accordingly. Begin by writing about when that particular emotion occurs and how it makes them think. Also write about how it makes them act.
