    "It has been shown that children with high
    functioning autism (HFA) experience clinically
    significant levels of anxiety more frequently
    than typically developing children. Prevalence
    rates of anxiety disorders in children with HFA
    range from 47 to 84.1%, whereas prevalence
    rates in typically developing children range from
    1.5 to 13%. Difficulties related to anxiety in
    children with HFA can impair academic and social
    functioning in children and cause significant
    distress for families."
