Jim Forgan is a licensed school psychologist and author of "Stressed Out! Solutions to Help Your Child Manage and Overcome Stress" with a long history of testing and treating children. Noticing that faculty, parents and students all seem to be experiencing increasing levels stress which can have a negative effect on academic achievement and well-being, Forgan asks us to consider this data:- According to the Centers for Disease Control, 7.1% (~ 4.4 million) of children in the United States are officially diagnosed with anxiety disorder. - The peak age for children identified with stress is age 11. - There are concealed effects of stress as 1 in 3 children with anxiety also have behavior problems.
