Extended at-home learning potential source of anxiety in students

A discussion with the UA College of Education's Rebecca Hartzell.

A $21 million dollar boost for school counselors and social workers from the state superintendent’s office will fund an additional 140 positions for two years. It comes as many students are readjusting back to in-person learning after months of attending classes virtually. We discussed the role counselors and social workers play in their development with Rebecca Hartzell, an associate professor of practice at the University of Arizona College of Education. Hartzell’s research focuses on social skills interventions for children with autism and emotional behavioral disorder. She discussed how the transition from extended at-home learning back to in-person instruction has led to anxiety in some children.
