Adverse Childhood Experiences Change Adulthood
Northern Kentucky University
"Early childhood events can unknowingly impact a person’s entire adult life. Learning some of what the milestones are for early childhood development is very important if a person works inside of a school. Being able to know these signs could potentially stop an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) from happening. Studies show the one in six people have experienced something of the sorts early on which explains why some people are the way they are in their adult life. Students causing problems in the classroom could scratch just the surface of what is actually going on in a tiny human’s life. It is up to the adults in any room where children learn and grow have a responsibility to recognize it and take action."
