One in eight children suffers from anxiety disorders. Without intervention, they’re at risk for poor performance and social/behavior problems in school. Traditional behavioral approaches often don’t meet the needs of students with anxiety. An effective behavior plan must avoid rewards and consequences and focus instead on teaching the student to cope and use alternative responses. Incorporating preventative strategies and self-monitoring systems, within an anxiety management approach to behavior intervention, can be effectively implemented in schools.
