Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have other difficulties as a result of the
disorder. Up to half of the children with ASD are thought to suffer with anxiety in a way
that interferes with their wellbeing and every day functioning. In this project the
investigators will study the effect of the group program The Cool Kids Anxiety Program:
Autism Spectrum Disorder Adaptation (Cool Kids ASD) - an anxiety treatment program specific
developed for children with ASD. The investigators expect a decrease in the overall anxiety
level together with an increase in the ability of handling anxiety.
