We talk often about stress in adults but we forget that childhood can be stressful too. Many children, particularly those with special needs, suffer with debilitating stress. Trouble focusing, short attention spans, not fitting in, poor organizational skills, as well as an inability to follow instructions and requests in expected patterns can lead to frustration, feeling out of control and hopelessness. This is a familiar pattern for many children with special needs and a sure set up for daily stress.
