ACES Information

ACES stands for Adverse Childhood Experiences Study. It is one of the largest investigations ever conducted to assess associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being. Parents, teachers, social service providers, child care workers, youth coaches and other providers can learn how the impact of adverse childhood experiences shapes the brains of many children, and learn effective techniques and strategies to help identify and assist children to reach their potential.
