Fostering School Success: How Caregivers and Social Workers Can Support Children's Education


CWLA is pleased to invite you to join us for this engaging skill-building opportunity that will share how to improve school experiences and long-term outcomes for children who have experienced trauma. Participants in this training will:


  • Develop an understanding of common barriers to educational access and engagement for youth who have experienced trauma.
  • Learn practical strategies for cultivating resilience at home that will lead to improved school performance.
  • Advance their knowledge of the education system and supports available to children with special needs and circumstances.
  • Expand their collaboration and advocacy toolkits to ensure children and youth have access to high quality schooling.

This training is appropriate for foster, adoptive, and kinship caregivers, and social workers who have an interest and responsibility to better support children and youth in school as well as their educational achievement.
