Welcome to Needham SEPAC

We are parents of special education students who have joined together to provide information and support to each other. 

We meet regularly with school administrators to give our input on the policies and programs that affect our children.

"Stressed-Out Students: Understanding the Impact of Anxiety on Motivation and Learning"

Today’s children and teens are experiencing more stress and anxiety than ever before, which can have a detrimental impact on academic, social, and daily life.  In this workshop, we will discuss:
  • The difference between stress and anxiety
  • How anxiety functions and what it might look like
  • The connection between anxiety and attention/executive function
  • Understanding and supporting skills to increase student motivation
Dr. Angela Currie is a pediatric neuropsychologist at NESCA, where she conducts neuropsychological and psychological evaluations with children, adolescents, and young adults. She works with children and teens to tease apart the various factors that may be contributing to their stress, such as underlying learning, attentional, or emotional challenges.
