Director of Student Services, East Central ISD, San Antonio, TX
“I knew something was missing with the term “at-risk”. After listening to Dr. H at a conference in San Antonio, his term “wounded student” helped me connect the dots. Wounded kids are beyond at-risk, so the preventative aspect of our at-risk interventions were not tending to the social/emotional and sometimes physical needs of children who have experienced trauma. At East Central ISD, we have developed the EC Cares focus group in response to this need. We utilize a chart to identify wounded/EC Cares students (note: H4W provides a sample template to clients), and we have found that once we identified students and provide appropriate support, there’s been an increase in attendance verses those who have not been identified. We have begun making this a district-wide initiative. EC Cares has positively impacted the culture of the district to meet the needs of all of our students and staff. It takes a village!”

"Having the opportunity to provide a district level professional development, completely focused on the wounded student, has been a hallmark experience for our organization. Without question, Dr. Hendershott’s time with our system set the tone for
this school year. Thank you Dr.
Hendershott for your passion,
dedication, and insight."
