 Holy Cross Head Start's Mental Health and Disabilities Coordinator, Silvia Steele, was joined by well respected, community professionals to be a part of a panel discussion regarding the effects of trauma at the Adverse Childhood Experiences:How They Impact a Child's Development Symposium on September 18, 2018.  The Junior League of Buffalo hosted this centennial symposium to bring to light the many issues and barriers that are related to those suffering from trauma.  During this panel discussion, facilitated by Monica Brown, Program Officer for the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York, they explored how to help children who experienced trauma and the effects it can have on a child's health, education, social and emotional development, and long term professional and personal prospects.  They also looked at the many approaches available to the community to mitigate these experiences and provide resources for those agencies who are working with children that are already affected.  Silvia specifically spoke about the many things that Holy Cross Head Start does when working with children who have or who are currently experiencing trauma and the strategies implemented in the classroom to assist that child.
