Guest Post: Toledo School Supt. Chris Rust - ACEs
In 1998, The Center for Disease Controls and Kaiser Permanente published the results of a two-year study that compares childhood experiences of adults in southern California with their health histories. Over 17,000 patients were surveyed to see if they’d had and of ten experiences before the age of 18. They called these “Adverse Childhood Experiences” (ACEs). This data was compared to the health histories of these patients. What researchers found is that the more ACEs a person had, the more likely they were to have one or more of the most common causes of early death. For example, a person who had experiences 4 or more ACEs was 7 times more likely to be alcoholic. A person with a score of 4 is 400% more likely to suffer from emphysema or other chronic respiratory diseases.
ACEs are adverse childhood experiences that harm children’s developing brains and lead to changing how they respond to stress and damaging their immune systems fso profoundly that the effects show up decades later. ACEs cause much of our burden of chronic disease, most mental illness, and are at the root of most violence. The ten ACEs are:
A family member who is depressed of diagnosed with another mental illness
Losing a parent to divorce, separation or deportation
A family member who is in prison
A family member who is addicted to drugs or alcohol
Witnessing a mother being abused
The study found that over ⅔ of the adult population have at least one ACE and over half have two or more. 12.5% have four or more.
The neurobiology of toxic stress impacts the development of young brains and learning. It impairs social, emotional and cognitive development.
Toledo School District faculty and staff have been studying ACEs this year and looking at ways to help children. Understanding the impact of ACEs helps us respond effectively to the needs of our students. Leaning to effectively help our students manage their stress and regulate theirs emeotions helps them to learn. It also prepares them for a healthier life as adults.
