School & the Anxious Child

For a child experiencing anxiety, appropriate supports & accommodations in the educational setting can make an enormous difference in his or her academic achievement. Additionally, such intervention can be the key to getting the overwhelmed and avoidant child to attend school regularly.  WorryWiseKids, a great online resource on anxiety, provides a valuable listing of possible classroom accommodations. Parents, I encourage you to take a look. You may find an idea worth discussing with the school – an idea that, when put into practice, may go a long way in your child’s ability to overcome anxiety and find mastery and enjoyment in his or her school day.
