Trauma Signs and Symptoms

Trauma signs and symptoms in young children can take many forms. Understanding these signs and symptoms as trauma related depends upon sensitive information gathering from the child, family, and Early Head Start and Head Start staff. That said, the signs and symptoms listed below must always be considered in the context of a young child’s history, caregiving system, supports, etc. and with recognition that these symptoms could also be symptoms unrelated to trauma.
