5 ways to help students in trauma
Natalie is a 15-year-old student in eighth grade. She was held back in fifth grade and possibly another time, but she is new to her school and the staff is unsure of her complete history. She generally attends her first two periods only three out of five days a week, and her absences are accumulating. Natalie rarely completes any work and is quiet and withdrawn. Most days she shuts out the world, putting her head on her desk, glancing at her phone, or scanning the hallway or classroom windows for any activity. Her mind always seems to be elsewhere.
