Session A (Workshops 3) 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Adopting the “Older” Child - Basic Remediation of a Traumatic Past (Part One)
(Part 2 - continued in B11)

This is an interactive session that will provide problem solving and information sharing types of learning. The participants will gain knowledge about Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) in internationally adopted children as a mental health condition and an educational handicap: its cause and major manifestations. The origin of DTD (repeated traumatization before and after adoption) will be discussed along with the associated features, such as abrupt first language attrition, cumulative cognitive deficit, post orphanage behavior, and specific learning disability. Finally, the issue of identification and remediation of the DTD will be explored at the level of family and school. A remedial model of mind/body regulatory rehabilitation, academic remediation, and peer socialization are presented and discussed.
