A handbook for teaching adopted and Looked After Children
Family Futures has pioneered innovative classroom strategies for helping children who have experienced trauma in infancy and who have attachment difficulties cope in the classroom. There is now a clear link based on research, between neglect and abuse and cognitive processing and behaviour problems in the classroom setting.
The handbook looks at 35 different problematic behaviours which children who have attachment difficulties and executive functioning problems exhibit in the classroom.
There is an introductory passage explaining executive functioning and how it impacts upon children’s learning and behaviour.
This is followed by charts which itemise behaviours, possible triggers and suggests interventions that the teacher might use.
