I hope you and your families and friends are well and recovering after the earthquake. Our school experienced little damage but most importantly, all our students and staff were safe and sound. I feel we were very lucky.
An earthquake of this magnitude is a scary event and we all experience and handle trauma differently. I have attached a note on what parents should look out for and how to handle traumatic stress in order to provide support for their children. Please be aware that post traumatic stress may occur at any time, from days to years after an event.
Please don’t hesitate to ask for support if needed. Annette, Julie and I are all available at Steller and we can refer to non-ASD professionals if needed.
