OCD AND ANXIETY
Struggling with a student who is melting down before school? Spending more time in the nurse’s office than the classroom? Afraid to interact with other students or teachers?

In four eye-opening episodes of the Understanding School Refusal podcast series, you will hear our medical experts break down the complexities of why children refuse to go to school, identify symptoms and behaviors, and share school refusal intervention strategies that educators and parents can use to work together to help kids get back to class.
