Self-Scale Assessment: Anxiety in School-Aged Children

By Dr. Sadeq Mohammed Ali, Medicline Dubai

This self-scale assessment is designed to help parents and caregivers evaluate anxiety levels in school-aged children. Please answer the following questions based on your child's experiences and behaviors:

Over the last two weeks, how often have you been bothered by feeling nervous, anxious, or on edge?

Does your child frequently complain of physical symptoms such as stomachaches or headaches when it's time to go to school or engage in school-related tasks?

Has your child's academic performance declined recently, despite previous achievements?

Does your child exhibit avoidance behaviors, such as refusing to go to school, skipping classes, or avoiding school-related events?

Has your child's social life been affected, with a noticeable decline in friendships or interactions with peers?

Does your child often seek reassurance or ask repetitive questions about school-related matters?

Has your child experienced frequent mood swings, irritability, or emotional distress related to school?

Is your child's anxiety interfering with daily activities, sleep patterns, or overall well-being?

This assessment provides general guidance and should not replace a professional evaluation. If you are concerned about your child’s anxiety or well-being, consult with Dr. Sadeq Mohammed Ali or a mental health professional for tailored advice and assistance.
