Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable, today’s kids are more anxious than ever before. Dr. Sharon Saline, veteran psychologist and author of “What your ADHD child wishes you knew: Working together to empower kids for success in school and life” and “The ADHD solution card deck,” discusses the grip of anxiety and what you can do to help reduce worries in neurodiverse students of all ages. After reviewing how anxiety works, she will show you how to help them change their relationship to worry, realistically evaluate situations and calm themselves down. You’ll learn easy, effective tools to help these young people worry less and feel more confident.

  • Develop the ability to externalize anxiety and reduce its influence on daily tasks and self-concept
