Anxiety disorders affect around half of children with ASD, with specific fears and phobias being one of the most common anxiety subtypes. Gradual exposure to the object of a phobia can help, but may require adaption for those with ASD. One possible solution is the use of immersive virtual reality environments (VREs) that allow participants to experience those things/situations which they find difficult but in a controlled and safe environment. Participants can navigate through the situation they find anxiety provoking (e.g. a street or school) and with therapist support at all times, learn new skills to manage their anxiety.
