Although some stress is quite normal, too much anxiety can interfere with school, friendships and family relationships.

Psychological testing for anxiety may be needed if your child:

  • Worries frequently that things will go wrong

  • Has significant test anxiety that interferes with performance

  • Mind "goes blank" when called on in class

  • Avoids socializing with other children

  • Fears minor changes in routine

  • Is rigid and perfectionistic

  • Panics on timed assignments and examinations 

  • Worries often about normal life events

  • Avoids having friends over

  • Refuses to participate in group activities

  • Imagines the worst and ruminates about fears

  • Overestimates danger and is preoccupied with unlikely catastrophes

  • Shows frequent signs of fearfulness, irritability and fatigue

  • Has sweaty palms, muscle tension, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, headaches and stomachaches

  • Avoids people and restricts activities

  • Has obsessive thinking and compulsive behaviors to ward off anxious feelings
