Helping Today's Stressed-Out Students: FREE Panel Discussion Tuesday, October 7th

Co-sponsored by NESCA
and Hunnewell Education Group

September 21, 2014

Stress and anxiety may be adversely affecting your child’s organizational skill and academic performance. Discover how independent boarding schools can help.

Kids today are under more pressure than ever. Increasing in both prevalence and severity among students, and manifesting at earlier ages, anxiety actively undermines executive function and exacerbates many underlying conditions, including ADHD.

Please join NESCA Neuropsychologist and Anxiety Specialist Angela Currie, Ph.D., Educational Consultants Oakes Hunnewell and Chris Overbye and admissions officers from five prominent independent boarding schools in a discussion of how their schools effectively support today’s highly-stressed students, and scaffold their academic and social success.

Using representative case studies, our panelists will describe how their schools would meet the needs of three bright but anxious and underperforming students who need support. A Q&A period will follow the presentation. Light refreshments will be served.

When:   7:00 - 9:00pm Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Where: The Wellesley College Club (Directions)
                   Wall Room - 2nd Floor
                   727 Washington Street
                   Wellesley, MA 02482

                   There is ample, free, off-street parking.

This program is FREE and open to the public, but seating is limited and advance registration is required.
