Reaching and teaching pupils with Adverse Childhood Experiences

Tickets £35, with discounts for groups and for alliance schools

The session examines how to reach and teach pupils with Adverse Childhood Experiences, covering what we all need to know and do.

Abuse, parental separation, neglect, bullying, bereavement are just some of the difficulties that can combine to create toxic stress for the young people that we teach.  The negative impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can include low academic achievement, poor health and as much as a 20 year drop in life expectancy.  Young people with 4 or more adverse childhood experiences are more likely to be labelled as lacking focus, and having behavioural or cognitive difficulties.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  All of us working in education can make a real and positive difference for children affected by ACEs.  This course will help us develop our knowledge about ACEs and gain very practical strategies that we can all do, whatever our roles within education.
