Slide 7

Manage Learning Disabilities and Anxiety Disorders


Did you know that about one in four children with ADHD also has an anxiety disorder? If your child has learning difficulties, a developmental disorder, and/or an anxiety disorder, work with his pediatrician and teacher to make a plan for managing test-day stress as best you can, through medication, relaxation techniques, or a combination of treatments. Know the ins and outs of your child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) and any appropriate testing accommodations through Section 504 — such as extended time or a private room for an exam — and confirm test-day plans with your child's teacher.
