This presentation will help educators and administrators effectively:

  • identify related case law and state statutes;
  • apply a trauma-informed approach to IEP development; and
  • apply practical, implementable strategies at the district and classroom levels to support students with a history of adversity or trauma.

This presentation will help educators and administrators effectively examine a trauma-informed approach to developing IEPs and 504 plans, including

  • the evaluation
  • team meetings
  • engaging caregivers and other stakeholders
  • writing present level of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP) statements

This presentation will introduce how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have re-shaped approaches to working with children and youth in educational settings. Additionally, participants will be able to describe and define trauma, its impact on youth and the school community, and the recent research on trauma-informed approaches in schools.

Trauma and toxic stress can impact a child’s ability to learn, form and maintain relationships, and manage their feelings and behavior. This presentation will help families understand how toxic stress and trauma affect youth, simple ways parents and caregivers can support their children and improve their behavior, and how to advocate for them at school.
