School Support

In-Person and Virtual Training

Today’s students come to the classroom with a wide range of needs beyond academics. According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, close to 40% of students in the U.S. have been exposed to a traumatic stressor in their lives (NCTSN, 2018, NCTSN System Framework for Trauma-Informed Schools).

We know that educators and those working in a school environment are dedicated to doing all that they can to support their students and enable them to be successful. We also know how overwhelming it can be when the magnitude of need seems insurmountable.

We are ready to help and have the tools that you need to become trauma aware, informed and responsive. What makes The Knowledge Center at Chaddock unique is that all of our trainers have direct experience working with students who have significant social, emotional and behavioral needs and have all worked in the school environment. We bring relevant experience and applicable strategies into all of our trainings, webinars, consultations, and conference presentations.

With Chaddock’s Developmental Trauma and Attachment Program (DTAP®) model as the foundation of our educational services we seek to enable educators to meet students’ needs through a trauma and attachment lens.
