Caregiver burnout is a real issue in schools. Teachers work tirelessly to educate our youth with special needs, at times without adequate support or awareness of how to cope with extremes in students’ behaviours.
An article will be published in the Manitoba Teachers Magazine which highlights Tamara Rogers’ presentation on Caregiver Burnout and Stress Management Tools while working with individuals who have ASD. It is critical that teachers participate in regular self-care activities and that they are aware of key strategies to reduce stress in the classroom.
