More than half of American children report having experienced trauma before the age of 16. Students who have suffered or witnessed trauma, score below average in reading and math and are three times more likely to have problems paying attention and to show peer aggression. Learn the impact of trauma on children and their families, define trauma and identify these students, learn options to promote healing, and hear recommendations for educators and related service personnel in school based settings.  Trauma Toolkit for Educators
