Addressing ACEs in Out-of-School Environments

This newly launched professional development module covers the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the utility of trauma-informed and healing-centered engagement as strategies to positively impact the development of school-age children in Out-of-School Time environments. Developed by the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) in collaboration with the National Center on Early Childhood Development, Teaching, and Learning (NCECDTL) the learning module provides context around ACEs and toxic stress, exploring types of ACEs as well as the seminal research study on ACEs and its implications.  Please note: login is required for module access.
