Along with Autism, Adam suffers from extreme anxiety disorder. His anxieties from the fear of bees & death were so extreme that they were taking over his life. We have a pool in our backyard but Adam wouldn’t enjoy it because of his fear of bees. We also wanted to take him on a tropical vacation but he didn’t want to go anywhere that there would be bees.
When we were referred to The Intensive Child & Family Services Program at Woodview, that’s when we met Brittany. Brittany worked with our entire family on Adam’s anxieties. She took Adam on outings & worked with him on techniques that he could use on his anxieties. These included breathing & phrases he could use to help him cope.
