It is not unusual for a teacher to identify a student who has experienced a specific, horrific incident as “traumatized.” However, they often miss the students who experience ongoing daily stress, like worrying if Mom can pay the rent this month, or will they have enough to eat that day. These students are chronically stressed and at-risk of being traumatized. If you want to learn how to reach students like these, we can help. We offer many resources at different price levels.
