Children sometimes have experiences which may have lasting effects on wellbeing. Trauma can occur during the experience but can also take a while to show. Children who have experienced trauma may have varying reactions which may show in mood, behaviour and learning difficulties. It is important to recognise and get help for these things early to avoid long-term problems.
To assist with this, this web page has resources for helping recognise trauma in your child, information on understanding and helping your child recover from traumatic experiences.
