I would familiarize myself with the child’s history, family situation and trauma. I’d speak with their doctors and therapists to understand their medical needs and how long (if any) they’ve been on their medications. I’d try to engage with the child respectfully but carefully. I would make sure that whatever environment that child is placed in, the adult in charge is sympathetic and understands that this is an illness and make sure they have patience.
