Mental Health In Children with Disabilities
Being a kid can be tough sometimes — and that’s before considering all the aspects of extra doctor’s visits, therapies, and other unique stressors that our kids face. Here are some resources to help support our kids’ mental and emotional health.
What can I do to help my child manage anxiety?
- We talked to four child anxiety experts to find out how we can better support our kids and ourselves through periods of change, and they each had great advice. Being present with our kids, connecting with them, and validating their feelings can help kids develop coping strategies.
- There are a variety of ways we can help our kids manage anxiety around everything from school to blood draws to going to the dentist. One piece of advice is to create a visual schedule and stick to it, which can help kids know what to expect from each day.
