Anxiety is an emotion commonly experienced by everyone when faced with challenging situations. School life has daily challenges for students needing to be able to organise themselves, and demonstrate previous learning whilst acquiring new learning. These attempts are frequently observed by classmates and in many instances evaluated by teachers. Students with learning difficulties are likely to experience greater challenges relative to their peers. Research suggests a higher prevalence of anxiety in children with learning difficulties which is partially related to these extra life challenges they face.

This workshop aims to increase parents', teachers' and other professionals' understanding of anxiety in children and adolescents, and to provide a repertoire of cognitive and behavioural strategies that can be used to support them in managing their anxiety at home and in school.

Presented by Dr Maria Ivanka Milic, Clinical Psychologist.
