About the event

As schools gain awareness of the impacts of historical trauma, systemic racism, food and housing insecurity as well as individual trauma, more educators are looking for answers to the question of how schools can better support students.

This training will focus on creating systems that develop the capacity of staff to approach student needs in a way that is child-centered, affirming and culturally respectful using trauma as a lens.

Designed for teams to rethink how they support students that need additional support that proactively provides supports that gives students what they need to be successful at school, while simultaneously reducing discipline actions, encouraging positive school culture and increasing a sense of efficacy for both staff and students.

This two day workshop will walk you through a step-by-step process for implementation of a tiered supports system at your site.

Students need different levels of support to be successful at school, and our role is to determine what supports are needed.

Develop a system of supports to meet the needs of students impacted by trauma.

Understand the purpose & composition of a care team.

Meet the universal needs of all students to build relationships and regulate their physiological state

Develop a menu of supports that are matched to student's needs

Understand how to match the purpose of the behavior with the intervention and collaborate with the student and family to develop next steps.
