June is PTSD Month: Not Just for Veterans

Jun 17, 2022 | News

These kids need additional supports and specific classroom strategies to help them succeed in school. Read more about How Trauma Affects Kids in School and how teachers can help them. Print the Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Flyer from the WV ACES Coalition and keep it near your desk as a reminder when working with children exposed to trauma. Finally, watch this brief micro-training about trauma, behavior, and social-emotional learning presented by Christy Fubio, Project AWARE Behavior Support Specialist, WV Behavior/Mental Health Technical Assistance Center.
