Anxiety vs Stress (PDF)


This is a free PDF resource - you are welcome to share it with as many people as you like. Getting this information out to as many people as possible is one way we can advocate for Autistic needs to be met by others in power (parents, carers, teachers, health professionals, etc.). You will not be added to any mailing lists by downloading a free digital resource on my website.


A bit about this resource:


Stress and anxiety are related, but they're not exactly the same. Mislabelling stress as anxiety is not just about semantics or being pedantic.

  • Ineffective supports
  • Ignoring body signals
  • Neglecting important coping skills
  • Pathologising stress responses
