Chalk Talk: Overcoming Test Anxiety
Many are familiar with the feeling of fear that can come when facing tests, from increased heart rate, perspiration and the feeling of going blank. To help overcome this anxiety, parents can help by helping the child attend school regularly and creating a restful place at home the weeks of testing. Parents also need to keep track of a child's progress over time, not just on one test. Communication with the child while giving encouragement will also help. Finally, talk with school officials if there are any questions or concerns about a test result. Often schools will be able to provide testing accommodations that may allow the student to test in a smaller environment, receive cueing, or have a school staff member administer the test.
