Wow! Excellent site. As a therapist that has worked with children with anxiety disorders I wish I had known about this site to share with my families. It covers each topic with valid information and in text that makes sense for children, parents, and therapists.

This web site is great for parents, teachers, and professionals alike. I spent
about half an hour reviewing the site and the links it offered. I addresses the
issue of Child Anxiety. It defines the difference between fear, phobias, and
anxiety. It explains the definitions, symptoms, and treatments of various
anxiety disorders. There is a section of FAQ's that is particularly helpful for
parents. In addition to the disorders, the site tells of age appropriate
behaviors so that parents can more easily distinguish between them. It offers
parents techniques to help their children as well as clinics and seminars for
all individuals (children, parents, teachers, and professionals). Literature
references are recommended to get a more indepth perspective.

Technical Remarks:

This is an incredibly comprehensive site. It's easy to navigate and appropriate
for anyone regardless of their expertise. It is also a well maintained site,
with all of the links in good working order.

I spent around an hour and a half browsing and reading the website. I found that
the content was very easy to understand and clearly stated. As a tool for
teachers and students I think that this site would be very helpful. It also had
some very good links.

A first time user would find this site very easy to use.

I spent about 45 minutes to an hour browsing through this site. The quality of
content was excellent with good, solid advice. It answered tough questions,
such as, will my child's anxiety go away naturally, how do I choose a child
therapist, and how do I differentiate treatment. It had information on many
disorders, lots of links for related information, and resources for educational
toys, CD's and videos for children.

Technical Remarks:

First time users will navigate easily through this website.

I found this site very useful in finding services and general information on
child anxiety disorders. I think this site provides accurate content, and could
be used to supplement teaching on anxiety disorders.

Technical Remarks:

I think this site could have utilized pull down menus in certain areas to make
navigation more efficient. I also think that providers should be listed on a zip
code search system. It would make it easier to find the services closest to you
without having to scroll through a list.

I think that this site is a wonderful site for anyone that is interested in
child or adolescent anxiety disorders. It is educational for
parents,teachers,students as well as professionals. I think that it allows those
that are interested in anxiety disorders a place to start educating about
causes,symptoms and treatments. I really liked how they defined fears, phobias
and anxiety as well as listed certain fears which are normal for certain age

Technical Remarks:

This site was very easy to access,and easy to navigate. All the links were
clearly defined and all directed the reader to the desired webpage. This site
also allows for readers to get the information they want easily without
searching through endless pages of information. All of the pages have headings
that contain information pertaining to that subject and are easy to find
