"Put aside any educational or mental health diagnosis and realize you have a student who is chronically dysregulated."
Heather T. Forbes, LCSW
All children deserve to fulfil their potential, but sometimes the odds can feel stacked against them. I work in partnership with education settings and families looking to give children who have experienced adversity the best chance to access and thrive in education, using a trauma-focused approach to support and learning with emotional regulation at the very heart of it.
With mental health issues consistently on the rise across our society, can you afford to work in a setting that's anything less than trauma-informed? The principles and strategies I share in my training are beneficial to all pupils and the staff supporting them.
