Recently, Ukeru launched a new series of webinars, speaking with trauma-informed changemakers. 

The first in this series was a discussion with Hannah Grieco. Hannah plays many roles. She is a mother of three children with special needs. She is a former teacher with a Masters in Education, and has, therefore, been on both sides of the school meeting table. She is an education and disability advocate, passionately sharing the story of her son’s experiences with restraint and seclusion. And she is a writer, with a powerful platform to educate others on the benefits of a trauma-informed approach. Through her work, Hannah has spoken with – and helped – hundreds of concerned mothers and fathers. Her essays and stories hit home with good reason. This piece from the Baltimore Sun is just one example of her moving and uplifting work.

Ukeru President, Kim Sanders, spoke with Hannah about her family’s experience with restraint, the transition from public to private school and back again, and her mission to help other parents navigate often confusing terrain.

If you were unable to attend the webinar, a recording is available here.
