Transitioning to a new family, new home, is overwhelming for anyone, let alone for a child with a trauma history. It's important for teachers to be aware not only of potential triggers but how to address behaviors in the classroom in an educated and trauma informed way. Parents have the opportunity to be strong advocates for their children in the classroom, as teachers are not always aware of the special needs that can arise with older child adoption. Make sure that teachers always keep your child in mind when planning activities and lessons, and if something does happen, that they are equipped to handle the behavior in the best way possible.
