Not surprisingly, children with learning disabilities tend to experience anxiety in school which, in turn, can complicate the identification and treatment of many learning issues.
At times this anxiety can become so severe that the child may engage in avoidance activities, up to and including refusing to go to school.
This special presentation, by NESCA Doctors Stephanie Monaghan-Blout and Angela Currie, will provide an overview of how anxiety is manifest in the classroom and how it can be identified in formal testing.
Specific accommodations and modifications for IEPs will be discussed. Finally, different theoretical and practical applications for working with these children both within and outside of school will be presented.
