Anxious Son with his Zoom class

Anyone here have tips or ideas on how to help a super anxious son deal with Zoom classroom class?. My kindergarten kid is having full on panic attacks at the idea of having to talk on camera. Please help.

Thank you.

 

Hi! Is he comfortable watching? Maybe turn his camera off so he is just watching the other kids. In any case, if he’s too anxious, he shouldn’t be required to participate. Another way is let him watch you talk using Zoom and then allow him to sit on your lap and just let him watch what you do, so he feels much safer. But if he's still too anxious, I think the best way is to forget about zoom classes and just use another remote learning method. Talk with his teacher about this problem.
