Education and children who have experienced trauma
Children who have experienced trauma may have extra challenges coping with school such as:
- difficulties concentrating in class
- difficulties with memory
- difficulties with organisation
- distractible and less able to follow instuctions
- hypervigilant or always alert and easily stimulated
- withdrawn and quiet
- emotional outbursts
- difficulties in their relationships with others
Children who have experienced trauma do not deliberately set out to be disruptive. It is the impact of the trauma on the child, emotionally and developmentally, that can lead to pain based behaviours.
