A free full day conference presented by The Greater Rochester Special Education Task Force

The morning session (9-12) will provide a basic understanding of how trauma impacts a student's ability to be successful in school and will provide information on how to recognize signs of trauma. Participants will learn how families and schools can work together to build resilience in students and what a trauma informed school can look like.

The afternoon sessions (12:30-2:00) will more specifically address trauma informed practices for students with disabilities, and (2:00-3:30) a school panel will share strategies for home and schools to support all students with trauma in their backgrounds.

Audience: Parents, School Staff and Agency Staff
