Teaching Children from Poverty and Trauma

A few months ago at one of our district PDs, the Special Education staff got to listen to a presentation on Trauma and how it affects students brains.  It was a very eye-opening presentation.  

This month the NEA Today Magazine cover article is Trauma: The Effect on Children and Learning.  

Now, I don't usually read the NEA Today Magazine and truth be told, I did find the information a bit skewed.  That being said, it was a good article and it gave a good introduction and some insight into a much larger issue.  

At the end of the article there is a link that takes you to a Handbook called: Teaching Children from Poverty and Trauma.  It is a resource of information to help students struggling with Trauma.   

I hope you find this information as helpful and informative as I have.  Please use this as a starting point towards a better understanding of this ever increasing concern within our student population.
