School refusal describes the disorder of a child who refuses to go to school on a regular basis or has problems staying in school. Children with school refusal often complain of physical symptoms shortly before it is time to leave for school or repeatedly ask to visit the school nurse.

This widespread disorder will be in the crosshairs during the next New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) Wednesday Webinar – “Dealing With School Refusal” – from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. EST on October 9.
