Childhood Stress and Anxiety Presentation 7:00 - 8:30pm Wednesday, April 10th

Sponsored by the Bedford SEPAC

Levels of anxiety and stress are rising among our students, particularly in middle and high school, although unfortunately, these issues are also now present in elementary schools.

On Wednesday, April 10th from 7:00 - 8:30pm in the Lane School multi-purpose room, School Psychologist Joel M. Rusticcia will discuss anxiety and stress in our school-aged children, and strategies to help you and your kids.

He will also address how this affects their schooling, and how parents can avoid becoming part of the problem.

Where: Lane School Multipurpose Room
                  66 Sweetwater Avenue, Bedford MA

Topics will include how parents can recognize the signs of anxiety, stress and depression, and work with the schools to help their children. R.S.V.P. to Dana Fine at danafine2000@gmail.com, or call 617-460-1610.

This talk is free and open to the public.
