Why Trauma-Informed Practices?

  • 46% of students under 17 have experienced a traumatic event
  • 26% of children under 4 have experienced a traumatic event.

As educators, we care immensely about our students beyond the classroom. We worry about their safety and well-being once they walk out our doors.

Students entering the classroom with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues are often at a disadvantage and struggle to keep up with the demands of traditional learning. Brains affected by trauma require a different kind of instruction—and a special kind of care.
