Trauma Crossroads: Where Trauma and Disability Meet in Young Children with Disabilities and Their Families


with Dana Cox, RN, ECSES
Friday, July 17, 2020
11:00am - 1:00pm
Virtual zoom event, we will admit people to the meeting 10 minutes prior to starting time.

We invite you on a journey to explore where “trauma” and “special needs” in young children and their families intersect. The outcome of this exploration is increased awareness with the goal of building resilience and introducing trauma-responsive supports for families who have young children with a developmental disability, difference, or special health care needs.

1. Define trauma, disability, “special needs” and resilience
2. Explore 7 areas children and/or parents of children with disabilities may intersect
3. Integrate strategies for each of the 7 “intersections” in your work with young children and families that can build their resiliency.

Going Deeper on Coaching and Routines Based Practices With Stacey Landberg M.S., CCC-SLP

Session Two 12:15pm - 1:15pm
Please only sign up for one session
Registration is limited for 30 people per session

Virtual ZOOM Event
Coaching and routines based interventions are considered “best practices,” but that doesn’t mean they’re easy or intuitive practices. Early interventionists benefit from ongoing support and resources to sustain their work and grow their relationships with families.

These Q&A sessions are small-group conversations intended to deep dive into the areas that are specifically relevant for your work (e.g. routines based assessments, IFSP outcomes, challenging situations, etc.).

You can submit your questions beforehand or requests for specific resources/topics by email to [email protected].
