Providing Safe and Inclusive Schools for Trans*Gender Students
Giorgio Jovani di Salvatore, MAED, ABSNP, LEP, CMIS
American Board of School Neuropsychology
National Association of School Psychologists

As legislation changes to improve the civil liberties and protections of trans*gender students in schools, so must those directly involved in the education of students. This program will review the basic development of gender identify, psychosocial issues affecting trans*gender students, applicable legal protections, the responsibilities of those working in educational settings, resources available to youth in our community, and understanding how to build a safe space in schools.
