Presenters: Sheri Martin Soosaar


Signs of anxiety are increasingly present in children attending occupational therapy services. Do you know what to watch for and how to help a child limit the number of tasks in which they feel anxious? This webinar will review how anxiety presents itself in the school-aged child, investigate the potential triggers for anxiety, and then explore ways to help the child and/or parent develop a functional toolkit that they can use in their everyday life to help manage this anxiety. The interventions are structured based on a holistic approach looking at how the child’s personal characteristics, the environment and the occupations interact and affect the presence of anxiety. 


After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
  1. Describe how anxiety manifests itself in children.
  2. Recognize typical triggers for anxiety in children.
  3. Implement at least 3strategies in their occupational therapy practice to help children and their families cope with anxiety.
