What causes stress in our kids today?  We will explore this question and look at what data and research tells us about how we can help them be less stressed.  We will look at different calming strategies that could be easily implemented in the classroom that will help with symptoms of ADHD, lower anxiety and depression, decrease anger, and improve both self-regulation and academic performance.
