This chapter focuses on the use of CBT for anxiety and anger, two symptom domains that commonly co-occur in youth with ASD and are associated with significant additional impairment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is an empirically supported treatment for both anxiety and anger in typically developing youth, and has recently been adapted for use in youth with ASD with promising preliminary data. This chapter presents an overview of these comorbid symptoms and their relevance, followed by a detailed review of currently available evidence for CBT as an appropriate intervention in youth with ASD. Finally, evidence-based recommendations for modifying and employing CBT in youth with ASD are provided.
