On March 9, Dr. Zayed, Dr. Butterfield, and Stacy Gronek, LCPC gave a three-hour presentation at the Regional Office of Education in Wheaton on School Anxiety and School Refusal. They provided information about how to identify anxiety and how to help children get back into school when they are struggling with anxiety. The approach includes working with the child, with parents, and with school professionals. Eighty professionals from schools around DuPage County were in attendance. Great feedback was given by all.
