Anxiety and supporting students with disability K-12

14 February 2021

Rose Dixon explains what anxiety feels like and what you can do to look for warning signs in your students with special learning needs.

Every adolescent wants to be popular and accepted… there is stigma in our society about difference and that really comes out in adolescence… it’s something I think we really do need to work on.

If you have an anxiety disorder you are going to find learning very difficult… it’s very hard to process information, to organise it and to retain it…

It’s important for teachers to recognise this, unless we deal with the anxiety disorder, we won’t be able to help these students very well.

The good news is that there are signs which happen before the sever blowout… and it’s our job to know what those triggers are…

And you can actually preserve that students in the classroom…
