TIG collaboration
"Children carry more between home & school than lunch and a backpack. Working together we can lighten their load." –National Association of School Psychologists

The TIG Community

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success” – Henry Ford.  The growth of TIG over the past 10 years has been due to the support from parents/guardians, school staff and the community.  TIG and the school districts strive to integrate as many emergency response units, local hospitals, area and/or non-profit organizations and businesses into their TIG planning and response.  TIG is now a true community-wide collaboration. 

How Children Respond to Death

A child’s developmental level will influence the way he or she understands death and expresses grief. Over the course of childhood, children develop an understanding of the abstract concepts of death and all of the related beliefs.
