UNDERSTANDING ANXIETY

"An anxious brain is not a learning brain"

 

 

This workshop will help you understand the anxious student and how their anxiety impacts on learning.

About 7% of children aged 7-14 will have experienced anxiety in the past 12 months. In the average classroom, that is two children. Why does this matter to teachers?

"An anxious brain is not a learning brain"

Anxiety can also be a precursor to poor mental health. As adults we need to understand anxiety a little better and help students "turn off" their anxiety.
