Nipping the adverse effects of childhood trauma in the bud


According to a new study by researchers at Rutgers University, children who have been affected by an ACE (adverse childhood experience) are more likely to have difficulty with math and reading up until the age of five. Children affected by an adverse childhood experience, which include neglect, physical, sexual, as well as psychological abuse, are also more likely to exhibit aggression towards others and have social problems.

The state of California is in the process of pushing for the passage of a Childhood Trauma Bill; this new legislation, refereed to as AB1644, would establish a four-year pilot program to help schools provide mental health services to youth in need. The program would place especial emphasis on support for younger students (grades three and below) as a preventive, as well as proactive step; trauma that occurs early on in life adversely impacts not only the child's immediate development, but their social-emotional growth well into adulthood. more
