Anxiety can cause students to feel isolated and overwhelmed, preventing them from learning and engaging in the classroom.

What you'll get: - Understanding of anxiety and clarification of anxiety vs. misbehavior -Breakdown of various anxiety disorders and how they present - Helpful tips for parents who have anxious children - Curated list of resources, including organizations, curriculum, books, and more! When students experience anxiety, they need help navigating through it. This guide will teach school counselors, educators, and administrators how to become powerful advocates for their students so they can thrive in the classroom and in life.
