Hello from your Wayne RESA Family Engagement Team,

 

We wish you well and hope you are safe and healthy. 

 

Many of the Children and Families we serve are in Trauma.  Many of us are living through traumatic experiences.  Below are resources, most videos, to help children understand what they are experiencing. 

 

Resources for Your Families:

 

  • Sesame Street in Communities

Traumatic Experiences:

When a child endures a traumatic experience, the whole family feels the impact. But adults hold the power to help lessen its effects. Several factors can change the course of kids’ lives: feeling seen and heard by a caring adult, being patiently taught coping strategies and resilience-building techniques, and being with adults who know about the effects of such experiences. Here are ways to bring these factors to life.
