Anxiety can be the worry or fear about tasks or situations that we face every day, whether it is something we experience alone or in our community with others around us. Everyone responds differently to anxiety, but we need to learn how to manage and cope with it. Our learners with special needs are no different. They can feel high levels of anxiety just like typical students, and also need to be taught how to manage this stress. Some things that could cause stress/anxiety are changes in their routine, social situations, sensory sensitivities, and seeing others experience anxiety. Here are a few helpful hints to manage stress and learn how to cope with anxiety.
