Join us for a full day of discussing how childhood trauma has a direct impact on your classroom.

8:30 am – 11:30 am – Dynamics of Domestic Violence

Angie Hunt, CDVP, will engage discussions surrounding the dynamics of domestic violence – what it is, effects on children, and how you can help. She will discuss why it is so difficult to leave, statistics, teen dating violence, power and control, and the cycle of violence. This will be an opportunity to discuss the frustrations, fears, and difficulties for families experiencing domestic violence and for the professionals who work with them.

12:00 pm – 3:00 pm – Identifying and Managing Dysregulation Caused from Adverse Childhood Experiences

Only recently have some of us become aware of the significant impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on behaviors and learning in the classroom.  We see dysregulated behaviors in the school environment but differentially identifying the cause is the way we will be able manage the developmental trauma.

During this discussion, Beth Bergstrom, MS CCC-SLP will guide you through the following:

  • What are ACEs and how do they change the development of the brain?
  • Use of the child’s history to diagnose and how to avoid misdiagnosis.
  • Identifying the 7 pieces of developmental trauma.
  • How the pieces impact acquisition of developmental milestones, pre-academic skills and academics?
  • How to identify dysregulated behavior in the classroom
  • How is intervention different from other behavioral and emotional modifications?
  • Managing the effects of developmental trauma on learning.
  • Case Studies

A catered lunch will be provided to all participants.
