Let’s learn together – A guide for parents and teachers of adopted children in primary school
Posted: 28 December 2018
This booklet has been comissioned by the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Board. It is written by an adopter with contributions from other adoptive parents, using recommendations from internationally renowned experts on trauma and attachement, plus a wealth of information gained through the training department of Adoption UK. Its purpose is to give adoptive parents and teachers an insight into how early relational trauma affect brain development, why school can be challenging for adopted children, and how we can help to improve the experience for all children by paying attention to the needs of the most vulnerable.
