Help for Billy
Creating Trauma Informed Schools
Heather’s trauma-informed approach to meeting the educational needs of our most challenging students (who Heather affectionately refers to as the “Billys” of the classroom) will help you understand why students do the things they do from a developmental trauma perspective. Yet more importantly, you will be given the tools you need in order to help the Billys of your school.
