This presentation, which is designed for parents, teachers, and coaches, covers the topic of worry and

anxiety in kids and teens. We will review normal developmental anxieties and how to tell when a child’s

anxious symptoms or behaviors require attention or treatment. We will also discuss parenting strategies

for anxious kids and self-care for parents and teachers caring for anxious youth. Phoebe S. Moore, Ph.D.,

Anxiety and OCD Clinic at the Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (CANDO) at
