This workshop is designed to help parents, educators and interested community members increase their understanding of anxiety, how it can affect our students, when intervention is needed and how families can help.
Specific anxiety disorders will be discussed as well as anxiety that may not meet the diagnostic criteria but is commonly seen in young people and individuals with learning issues, ADHD or spectrum issues.
