Do you have a student, grades K-5, who is extremely anxious about school?

This presentation will focus on how caregivers can work with their child’s school team to address their anxiety in the classroom. An introduction to a school’s tiered system of supports will be provided and the different types of staff available for partnership. Practical information on the steps involved in the collaboration process, how to approach anxiety as a team, and different strategies for supporting anxious students will be discussed. There will be 15+ minutes for questions at the end.
