Anxiety and SPD

This past school year started off with Kyra having intense headaches and they determined the cause to be anxiety.  I couldn’t wrap my head around it since she was only 7.  I knew she hated school and still does but I couldn’t understand in causing headaches to the point where I had to keep her home for a few days just to break the cycle.  I really couldn’t understand anxiety in her age, not when she has so much to be carefree about and I try to lead by example not worrying, that is until I read this article.  It really made it easy for me to understand why she might be experiencing anxiety at such an age when life is suppose to be carefree and fun.
