How do school staffs work with pupils who show symptoms of PTSD? To what extent does the school cooperate with other authorities when it comes to pupils with PTSD-symptoms? The main result is that the school staffs, in this particular school, have good knowledge of PTSD and its´ symptoms. They know that PTSD can affect behaviour and learning capacity. They also know that these children have special needs but it’s not always possible for the school to meet these needs in a professional manner. (Less)
