Performance / Academic Anxiety in Children


Children with performance/academic anxiety experience excessive and paralysing worry about school, athletic or artistic performance. These children may experience the “freeze response”, where their mind goes blank and they cannot complete the task at hand. This can appear to be due to distraction, laziness or a lack of preparation and can be confused with symptoms of attention disorder like ADHD.
