Emotional Difficulties

Trauma, unpleasant situations in school or family struggles may lead to emotional difficulties. Children may begin to withdraw, isolate themselves or display disruptive and/or disturbing behaviours towards towards themselves, their friends and families.

Children who have emotional difficulties display the following behaviours in all or certain settings:

  • tell lies
  • put the blame on others
  • always looking sad or angry
  • bully, tease or name-calling
  • often irritable or nervous easily
  • easily startled by noise, people or environment 
  • become violent when being questioned or accused
  • cry easily and/or lead to hysterical screaming or wailing
  • always keeping to self or do not speak to familiar people
  • cringe or resist due to fear in changes, strangers or environment
  • feel rejected and withdraw when they make a mistake or when ideas are not taken
  • panic, stress or anxious in response to situations that seem harmless or irrelevant

Fix an appointment for your child to go for our Dynamic Diagnostic Assessment (DDA™) to identify your child’s learning and developmental strengths and weaknesses.
