Description

Research has shown that over half of students in school day have experienced a significant number of Adverse Childhood Experiences (aka ACEs). The difficulties caused by adverse experiences can have a huge impact on a student’s behavior, cognitive abilities, health and success across their life-span. In this session paraeducators will learn how ACEs impact students and what interventions staff can use to help students regulate and build resilience.
