Because my time is short, I have to be quick about something that is apparently very important. I have been exchanging messages with at least two persons who are either parents of children who have special needs because of CSA or who themselves need special guidance because of their own CSA.
Survivors have major problems in our educational system. Their traumas are probably mis-diagnosed by the system as a variety of other disabilities (such as ad and adhd) and they are sometimes sidelined or medicated because of it.
Survivors have all kinds of special problems in relating to classroom and individual instruction. They have: 1. dissociation problems during instruction. 2. problems interacting with other students. 3. Behavioral problems. 4. Family problems 5. Problems in concentrating on school work. 6. Issues with PTSD. 7. Special problems with projection and transferrence.
I am sure the list could go on. In fact, it probably needs to be refined and amended.
I was able to have some succeess educationally because I was able to solve many of my own problems with the system in an effective way. There are lots of guys (and gals) who need assistance in achieving success with the educational system.
We need a forum where educational issues for survivors are specifically discussed.
