Anxiety and Reading in the Classroom

Amie Grills, Ph.D.

Presented at Dyslexia and Literacy: Understanding Anxiety and the Struggling Reader

on Friday, February 14th, 2020 from
the Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center at the UCLA Medical School.

Amy Margolis, Ph.D.

Dr. Amie Grills specializes in anxiety, trauma, and depression (particularly in children), as well as the development and evaluation of cognitive-behavioral assessments and interventions, including those conducted using web-based designs. Her work has examined the roles of peer (e.g., bullying and friendship quality), familial (e.g., parental anxiety and stress), and academic (e.g., achievement, attention) variables on the development of youth anxiety and depression. Currently, she has an NIH/NICHD funded project on the impact of socioemotional difficulties on young children’s academic achievement and the influence of these difficulties for children involved in a multi-tiered response to intervention program for reading disabilities.
