For individuals providing support to children and teens who are unaccompanied, homeless, or experiencing residential instability due to family transitions, this training offers information and strategies for navigating educational and social service systems to support educational continuity and reduce disruptive impacts.
We will discuss the impact of mobility, change, and loss on children and teens, discussing how the impact can vary with developmental stage. Learn what scenarios constitute a child being considered homeless, unaccompanied, or in foster care, and the legal and service access implications of each situation. Information about school-based and other community resources will be provided. Class size is limited to 50.
