In the past few years, anxiety has been on the rise in our schools. This presentation will start by defining anxiety, outlining the different types of anxiety and discussing what anxiety can look like at this age.
We will discuss strategies to use when your child is experiencing anxiety and talk about steps to take when anxiety surpasses normal levels. We will share the plan Spencer Butte uses as it partners with families to support students struggling with anxiety. Lastly, we will provide some resources for families and have time to answer questions.
Presented by Margaret Albright, School Counselor and Nichoel Fry, School Nurse
