On Friday the Special Education Team at Robertson presented a three-part presentation on serving all students with trauma and how that impacts their learning. We covered ACES, gen. ed strategies in the classroom for trauma and calming kits and why they are so important to have in the classroom. They each received a calming kit complete with items and directions and breathing technique which was graciously approved for by the principal with school funds and had the principal support! We then did a “Make & Take” where we made calming bottles. It was well-received by all!
