This Tuesday, March 22nd at 7:50am, Ms. Vreeland will be speaking to our community about anxiety and how to help our children manage through times of stress. Her presentation, Overwhelmed Children: Let’s Talk About Anxiety, is for all ages. Please join us in the cafeteria after drop off for this special presentation during our next PTA meeting. If you would like to see this session offered after school, please email Rachel Elder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This discussion timely follows research recently published from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that analyzed answers from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children’s Health and found that one in seven children experiences a psychological disorder, which is classified as a mental, behavioral or development problem.
The data — based on more than 35,000 children ages 2 to 8 — looks at parents’ responses about their child’s language problems, learning disabilities, reported ADHD, anxiety, depression and more.
