How to Relieve School Anxiety

How some kids, school can be a tense and fearsome place. Children with special needs in particular may have problems understanding what is expected of them; may face painful social exclusion; and may find the work confusing and stressful.

Five Things Teachers Need to Know

  1. My child struggles with fears that may seem silly or unrealistic. Please appreciate that they are very real and terrifying to him.
  2. Predictable routines, clear instructions, and anything else that lessens stress will help my child succeed.
  3. New experiences may be scary for my child. Be aware that he may need extra time and specific guidance.
  4. My child has significant challenges, but he also has many strengths and gifts. Please use these to help him have experiences of success.
  5. Please keep the lines of communication open between our home and the school. My child needs all the adults in his life working together.
