Ava has anxiety

Ava has anxiety

Ava is a Year 7 student with severe anxiety. Ava finds it almost impossible to speak up in class or make any presentations in front of an audience.  After consulting with her parents, Ava’s school has made the following adjustments:

  • Ava films herself making her in-class presentations at home, and submits this to the teacher.
  • Ava is allowed to carry a phone during the school day so that she can speak with her parents as needed.
  • The school has set up an online forum site and Ava’s teachers encourage this method of discussion in addition to in-class discussions.
