Autism Emotions is a science based website that explains the importance of emotions in autism, why autistic people experience unwanted emotions, and how to reduce or eliminate those emotions.

While cognitive behavioral therapy, a standard treatment for depression and anxiety, may help some people, it doesn’t address the root causes of those emotions in autism and may even be harmful if the therapist doesn’t have a good understanding of autism.
