8 Neurobiological Impact of Trauma
Abuse and neglect have profound effects on brain development. The longer the abuse or neglect, the more likely it is that permanent brain damage will occur. Not only are people with developmental disabilities more likely to be exposed to trauma, but exposure to trauma makes developmental delays more likely Severe neglect can result in reduced brain size, decreased density of neurons, and smaller head circumference

9 Paradigm Change~ Basic premise for organizing services is transformed from: “What is wrong with you?” to: “What has happened to you?” Change starts with an organizational shift from a traditional “top -down” environment to one that is based on collaboration with those who have experienced trauma and their families
