Easter Seals Michigan is proud to launch The LUNA™ Model, a FREE online screening that will determine if a child has experienced a traumatic event and would benefit from services. LUNA™ stands for LOOK, UNCOVER, NURTURE, and ACT, all stages in which we address a child that has experienced trauma or chronic stress. A traumatic or chronically stressful event can be many things beyond abuse or neglect. As the number of childhood trauma and chronic stress experiences increase, the risk for health problems in adulthood increases.

How the LUNA™ Model Works:
ONLINE SCREENING TOOL: Take the free online screening - this short, four question tool will determine the impact trauma exposure has had on the child. This will help determine if more targeted examination is warranted.
COMPREHENSIVE TRAUMA ASSESSMENT: After taking the free online screening, an in-depth examination may be required. This comprehensive trauma assessment includes 3-4 clinical batteries to explore the impact and identify the best treatment.
MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM ASSESSMENT: After taking the comprehensive trauma assessment this multidisciplinary team assessment may be needed. This assessment includes psychological, speech and language, occupational therapy and neurological metrics to identify the impact the trauma has had on the child.
