Yvette Hyter, PH.D., CCC-SLP – Live interactive webinar. Dr. Hyter will cover trauma’s impact on child’s neurodevelopmental outcomes, impact on neurodivergent children, and the implications for educators, healthcare providers, and clinicians.
Experiencing trauma within one’s family can result from a variety of causes including maltreatment and/ or neglect; however, trauma can also be caused by systemic issues such as racism, academic exclusion, ableism, and heteronormativity. This trauma is a frequent occurrence for too many children in the US and around the world. The consequences of trauma negatively impact all aspects of child development, including communication, language, and academic outcomes. This three-hour seminar covers trauma’s impact on child’s neurodevelopmental outcomes, impact on neurodivergent children, and the implications for educators, healthcare
providers, and clinicians.
