Tip sheet 1 - attachment difficulties in school

Children with attachment difficulties can need extra help in managing all aspects of school life and can add pressure to the busy lives of school staff. This tip sheet is a very brief summary of what school life with such children can mean and how to make life a little easier for them and you.

Tip sheet 2 - difficult behaviour in the classroom

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes seem to be developmentally below their chronological age and also may have developed strategies for survival that are difficult for you to manage in the classroom.

Tip sheet 3 - eating difficulties

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes show difficulties or ‘odd’ behaviour in relation to food and eating.

Tip sheet 4 - empathy

Many children who have had experience of neglect or abuse very early in their lives have difficulties both in recognising and coping with their feelings. This can make caring for such children very difficult both practically and emotionally. Responding to the child with empathy is a crucial tool to help the child change and to make your life as a carer easier.

Tip sheet 5 - incontinence

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes seem to have difficulties with toileting behaviour, beyond the normal accidents that might be expected. This can be a difficult situation for carers to cope with both practically and emotionally.

Tip sheet 6 - nurturing

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives often need time to successfully complete previous stages of development that they did not have the opportunity to do at a younger age. This is best achieved through special times of nurturing which is part of the healing process for traumatised children.

Tip sheet 7 - play

Play: why it’s so important and how to make it helpful.

Tip sheet 8 - self injury

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes show self injurious behaviour.

Tip sheet 9 - sleep problems

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes seem to have difficulties going to bed, getting to sleep or staying asleep. This can be a difficult situation for carers and their families to cope with both practically and emotionally.

Tip sheet 10 - spoiling good times

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives sometimes seem to have difficulties with allowing themselves to have a nice time. This can be a real cause of frustration to carers and spoil the growing sense of attachment between child and carer.

Tip sheet 11 - stealing problems

Children who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect in their early lives commonly have difficulties with stealing and often this goes hand in hand with lying and other difficulties with honesty.
