Separation anxiety disorder in children manifests as intense fear or distress when confronted with separation from a primary caregiver or loved one. Children grappling with this condition often harbor overwhelming concerns about the safety and well-being of their caregivers, leading to significant emotional turmoil during separations, such as going to school or being apart for brief periods. At WCWCW, we acknowledge the complexities associated with separation anxiety disorder and offer comprehensive assistance and effective treatment approaches to aid children and their families in navigating this prevalent childhood issue.
