It is not uncommon for looked after and adopted children to exhibit behaviour and learning difficulties in their schooling.
These children can struggle to develop an internalised sense of safety so school can become a place of high anxiety for them. Their behaviour can become controlling and manipulative, they can be triggered into the primitive brain reactions of fight, flight or freeze, they can experience difficulties with organisation, planning and working memory and struggle to self-monitor i.e. to see their actions and behaviour as others perceive them. In contrast, sometimes traumatised children manage to hide their anxiety in compliant, people-pleasing behaviour; these children often experience difficulties but can be overlooked as they seem to manage. Family Futures offers education services to help with these potential difficulties.
