According to studies by the Centers for Disease Control, one in six students ages two to eight experience a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. The CDC further states that anxiety disorders typically increase with the age of the student. Supporting anxious children at home, in school and in the community is pivotal to their social and emotional well-being.

To help parents get an understanding of the types of anxiety and how anxiety presents in children and adolescents, Verona’s public schools will hold a presentation next Thursday, October 28, by Dr. Suzi Millar of Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care’s School-Based Training program. The program will take place in the auditorium at Verona High School from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Dr. Millar will speak about how to recognize behavioral, social and emotional responses to anxiety, as well as how parents can support or respond to their children.
