She will differentiate between stress and clinical anxiety and talk about how to recognize clinical anxiety, particularly in children with learning deficits. She also will discuss strategies for teachers and parents to address their children’s anxiety. Dr. Kramer will be joined by Lauren Taylor, who will share her own personal story about her son who has been diagnosed with dyslexia and anxiety. Specifically, Mrs. Taylor will provide strategies for navigating the special education system and advocating for children in schools.
