The workshops are for teachers, classroom assistants, foster carers and adopted parents on supporting fostered and adopted children in school. School can be challenging for adopted and looked after children and young people. This training will focus on some difficulties which can be understood in terms of trauma and attachment, including:
anxiety and disengagement
aggression and defiance
Attendees will learn simple effective strategies to help manage behaviour and support learning and will receive a free Let's Learn Together booklet.
