Serin Center

Children with ADHD and anxiety appear to experience more emotional dysregulation than their peers. While they experience the same emotions as individuals their age, they experience them much more frequently and intensely. They may be more likely to get stuck and caught up in their emotion due to difficulties with executive functioning skills and seeing the bigger picture.

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorder appears in approximately 7% of the United States population in children, adolescents and adults. The prevalence of social anxiety disorder decreases with age, occurring most in adolescents and young adults. In children, the anxiety must be present with peers as well as adults for this diagnosis. The most common feature of social anxiety disorder is heightened fear or anxiety which almost always appears in one or most social situations, therefore being avoided or endured. There is a feeling of being negatively evaluated or not performing by the individual. These symptoms appear for at least 6 months or more. Those with social anxiety may have difficulty interpreting facial expression and their own emotional response.
