CART (Child Abuse Reporting Training)

This is a training you will take at the beginning of TESL 401-ESL Literacy Practicum.

These are my take-aways of this training:

  • Physical abuse: body marks, human bites and bald spot. Student apear weary of adults , overly aggressive or withdrawn, destructive to self and others. Comes to school early and leaves late. Won’t tolerate physical touch, overly compliant, have physical of head, stomach. All of these raise a RED flag.
  • Emotional: a general failure to thrive, substance abuse, Ulcers. They might seem aggressive or compliant. Torturing animals, delinquent behavior, stealing , vandalism.
  • Sexual abuse.
  • Neglect:frequent school absences, changes in mood, depression and self destructive behavior, severe performance drops, sexual promiscuous behavior….poor hygiene, constant hunger, falling asleep in class. They want to be alone.

Reactive attachment- could be because of neglect.

Malnutrition, untreated illnesses, excessive weight changes, chronic head lice.
Reporting process:
We are all required to report ANY abuse.

Things to remember:
