School districts are working hard to meet the needs of their students. Efforts are being made to access resources such as, Bi-Tapp to help reduce the high levels of stress and anxiety that students of all ages are experiencing. It is difficult for a student to perform well academically if they are overwhelmed, anxious or going through a difficult time in their life.
The data collected by the Counseling Department at Canyon View High School, located in Cedar City, Utah has shown remarkable results.
KarriAnn Raddon, School Counselor and Developer of the Tapping to Wellness Program stated, “Our teachers have been able to keep kids in class when they are anxious. We’ve seen test scores go up and we’ve seen some really great results in our offices when working with kids who are dealing with trauma or any kind of crisis situation. From November 2018 through May 2019, we had a 53% reduction in anxiety in presenting issues students claimed while using the tappers. In our Math 2 class, there was a 13% increase in scores of those students using the tappers while testing or doing assignments. I look forward to the continued success of the Tapping to Wellness Program at our school.”
