Educational Rights of Children Affected by Homelessness and/or Domestic Violence

Join the Conversation

Tuesday, July 7th to Wednesday, September 30th

Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.

Directions: Please watch Eugene Augusterfer’s presentation and interview Telemedicine in Mental Health first. Then feel free to join us in this open forum. All are welcome to join this forum, whether you have an account on Healtorture.org or not. For more information on using the forum, please read the directions on the first post. Please keep your comments respectful, relevant, factual, and do not share identifying information about clients per client privacy and HIPAA regulations. This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

An excellent resource created for Massachusetts but which may be useful to practitioners in other states as well, this book covers:

  • the effects of violence and/or homelessness on children in school
  • the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance act
  • keeping children safe at their selected school
  • special education for homeless children affected by domestic violence
  • appealing shelter placements that are too far from a child's school
