NASET’s Treatment of Disabilities and Disorders for Students Receiving Special Education and Related Services
Treatment of Anxiety Disorders
What is anxiety?
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. Many people worry about things such as health, money, or family problems. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For people with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, schoolwork, and relationships.
There are several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and various phobia-related disorders.
How is anxiety treated?
Anxiety disorders are generally treated with psychotherapy, medication, or both. There are many ways to treat anxiety, and you should work with a health care provider to choose the best treatment for you.
Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” can help people with anxiety disorders. To be effective, psychotherapy must be directed at your specific anxieties and tailored to your needs.

TRIVIA QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Joann Judge, Erin Wilson, Katrina Snider, Lauro Esquilona III, Patsy Ray, Emily Lincoln, Ellen Kay, Nellie Ferdinandsten,Claudia Senior, Cindi Maurice, Sandra Juntunen, Rebekah Budziszews, and Karen Frantz-Fry who all knew the answer to last week's trivia question:
A device that follows kids’ eye movements as they watch a video showing a social interaction between two children may help speed up the diagnosis of this disorder, researchers say. Data from two new studies, published simultaneously this month in JAMA and JAMA Network Open, suggest that the tablet-based device can identify the disorder in children ages 16 months to 30 months as accurately as a specialist would. The tool monitors a video viewer’s eye movements at a rate of 120 times a second. It allows specialists to determine moment by moment what social information children are taking in, with typically developing children focusing on the interaction while toddlers with this disorder gaze at other spots in the video. The results can be available in 30 minutes. What is the disorder?
Answer: AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER
This week's trivia question:
After initial experiments in 1916, it wasn’t until George Klein’s invention in 1953 that this assistive technology device became a reality. Originally, Klein and his team invested in this important assistive technology to aid veterans returning injured from World War II. Klein considered the project to be the most rewarding of his career. In the end, he developed a unique package of technologies that are still features of his invention. The prototype of his invention for individuals with disabilities was kept at the Smithsonian in Washington for years, but returned to Canada in 2004 and is now part of the Canada Science and Technology Museum collection in Ottawa. What did George Klein invent?
