Understanding and Advocating for the Needs of Adoptees in School

Children who have experienced early trauma and caregiver losses, often encounter difficulties in their school environment. Multiple factors contribute to children feeling emotionally unsafe, and unable to tolerate the feelings of shame, and lack of competence, that they encounter in this setting.

It is important for adoptive parents, and the professionals that support adoptees, to advocate for the unique needs of these children in their learning environments. If a child’s experience is acknowledged, and validated, they are able to trust that adults understand them, and are able to meet their needs – opening up opportunities for learning.

This workshop will assist school professionals to assess whether a child is able to tolerate their learning environment, to identify their experiences, and understand how it relates to their history. School professionals will also explore what adaptations are most useful in creating successful learning environments for adoptees in the classroom.
