Strengthening Families Community of Practice: Through a Trauma-Informed Lens – Session 8 (ASC)

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Bennington Early Childhood Center
Instructor: Dr. Johana Brakeley

This eighth session will focus on addressing the needs of children and families with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We will examine the stigma of intellectual and developmental disabilities and how they affect children, as well as engage in self-reflection regarding personal attitudes, reactions and perspectives on children and families with disabilities. After completing this session, participants will be able to (1) understand a broader definition of developmental disability and think about what it may mean for children and families, (2) think about Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) and their impact on childhood adversity through a developmental lens, and (3) learn how commonly childhood adversity/trauma occurs for children with IDD and become familiar with associated myths that can be a barrier to identifying IDD and trauma. This training is open to those early childhood professionals who have committed to attending all ten sessions. This training supports the core knowledge area of Families and Communities. This training provides Advanced Specialized Care hours.
