Emotionally based school avoidance / school refusal

We expect to see a rise in emotionally based school avoidance (EBSA) in the coming months. It’s likely both that children who’ve struggled with this in the past may struggle again and we expect to see a rise in new cases, often linked in with separation anxiety, academic anxiety or social anxiety. 

At present videos are auto-transcribed in order to get subtitles on all new courses. Please help us develop this feature by letting us know about any major errors in grammar or educational terminology.
