Dealing with Anxiety Disorders
There are several symptoms of anxiety in children: recurring fears & worries, physical complaints, like stomachache or headache, trouble concentrating, trouble sleeping, fear of social situations, fear of leaving home, fear of separation from a loved one and refusing to go to school.
Dr. Samantha Eve Morris, Supervisor of Healthcare Integration, Pediatric Outpatient with Banyan Health Systems, affirms when the symptoms interfere with the daily life, the child and his family have a serious problem. Early identification of the symptoms is important to prevent exacerbation of the problem.
The expert explains they have assessment tools to help to identify what type of anxiety the child could have.
