Jed Applerouth

Description

For many students, standardized tests, like the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, and more, bring anxiety levels to new heights. When anxiety runs high, test scores run low. Thankfully, there are proven interventions that middle and high school students can use to reduce test anxiety and improve their performance. In this webinar, Dr. Jed Applerouth will share practical strategies that parents and educators can use to help anxious testers. He’ll also help you understand potential confounding factors such as processing speed deficits, learning differences, family expectations, generalized anxiety disorders, metacognition, and emotional self-regulation. Help your students take the edge off of high-stakes testing.
