All childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have an effect on children and their lifelong development. These experiences impact their school experience and require educators to view their students from a different lens. When teachers and staff understand how these experiences impact their students, they have the ability to better support them both academically and emotionally. In this course, we will familiarize ourselves with the ACES research, discuss the various forms of trauma that individuals can experience and discuss how to best support students. If you would like to become trauma informed and gain knowledge that will help you support those students who arrive to your classroom with the weight on their shoulders then this course is for you!  This course is suitable for teachers of all grades and subjects.
