This paper is an analysis of three different programs serving children who have gone through trauma in early childhood. A typical Westchester public school special education program, Ramapo for Children located in Rhinebeck, NY, and Mulberry Bush School in Oxford, England provide a closer look into the options and treatment these students receive. Most of the methods are grounded in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), trauma-informed education, and social-emotional learning curriculums. Through examining the structures and approaches of these schools and camps, most effective and ineffective evidence-based practices are distilled.
