Healthy children living in safe and secure environments tend to follow what is considered a normal developmental trajectory, but traumatized children frequently do not develop along the “normal” trajectory and may never reach certain milestones. Knowing what is developmentally expected and what is out of the normal range can help providers in child welfare intervene with children and teens who are system involved. In this course we will explore normal development and age milestones in several areas (cognitive, social and emotional, speech and language, fine and gross motor, behavioral) as well as the impact of trauma on different areas of development of children and youth who are system involved. We will also discuss types of referrals based on areas of delay and participants will have a chance to discuss their current cases.
