Working with Abused and Neglected Children

Whether we want to think about it or not, many children are abused or neglected all around us. Sometimes the signs are so small and insignificant that they would surpass the regular person’s attention. Being specifically trained will help you recognize those signs, identify who potentially is at fault for the suspected child abuse, and, most importantly, what to do about it.
While no one would want to think about it this way, a critical piece of online early education training could very well be understanding abuse and neglect in your students and how to make sure that it gets reported to the proper authorities. As difficult as it may be, emotionally, understanding and recognizing it helps make sure that every student can be safe and protected the moment they step through your doors.

This course also focuses on working with children who require trauma-informed care so that everyone feels safe, comfortable, and welcome, no matter what situation they are coming to you from.

There’s a broad spread focus in this course, but it is categorized into the three focus angels for the best approach.

  • Go over the 3 most common abuse types: Starting, we go over the 3 most common abuse types, including signs, education on what it can look like from child to child, and how to get used to recognizing each one, as it differs from the other.
  • Understanding how to identify and report suspected child abuse: The next step is understanding how to figure out which of the 3 types of abuse or neglect and maltreatment you see so that you can report it to the proper authorities. This also explains your role as a mandatory reporter.
  • Learning how to provide “trauma-informed care” to victims: From noticing the signs to trauma-informed care, and everything in between, you’ll learn how to care for each student properly. You will be able to fulfill their needs so that everyone is safe and loved when it comes to time spent in your classroom and your institution.
