Virtually all children experience the death of a friend or family member at some point in their childhood.  Even though bereavement is a normative experience, a significant loss can have a significant impact on children’s psychological adjustment, academic achievement, and personal development.  This presentation will provide insight into how children come to understand and adjust to a loss and practical suggestions on how adults can talk with children and provide needed support.  The free resources developed by the Coalition to Support Grieving Students (of which ASHA is a Supporting Organizational Member) will be highlighted. There are limited seats for the Thursday, March 23, 2017 2:00-3:00 PM ET webinar presented by David J. Schonfeld, MD, FAAP, Director, National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement.
