We explored the feasibility of using school personnel as reporters to examine the relationship between the level of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) exposure in a nonclinical sample of public elementary schoolchildren and academic risk. We selected a random sample of 2,101 children from kindergarten through 6th grade classroom rosters at 10 elementary schools. Students were 50% male, 78% White, and 55% free and reduced meal program participants. School personnel reported their factual…

Prevalence and Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Chicago Public School Students in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
TLDR
ACEs were common among CPS high school students and associated with many negative behavior and health-related outcomes and can inform and strengthen the development of safer, more supportive, and trauma-informed schools that help all students and families thrive.
Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Academic Achievement of School-Aged Learners
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are part of ongoing discussions among educators identifying at-risk students in need of additional support for academic success. This paper explored the
Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences in Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders in Special Education Schools from a Multi-Informant Perspective
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are associated with an increased risk of developing severe emotional and behavioral problems; however, little research is published on ACEs for students with
The Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences on Health and Development in Young Children
TLDR
This work finds that there is a dose-response relationship between ACE count and increased risk of health and developmental difficulties, and children who were reported as affectionate with their parent had decreased risk for health and development problems.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Risk of Childhood Delays in Children Ages 1–5
TLDR
The data currently supports a strong correlation between ACE score and risk of delay among children ages 1–5 and among children with 4 or more ACEs.

An Investigation of the Relations Between School Concentrations of Student Risk Factors and Student Educational Well-Being
This study investigated the unique relations between school concentrations of student risk factors and measures of reading, mathematics, and attendance. It used an integrated administrative data
Violence exposure, trauma, and IQ and/or reading deficits among urban children.
TLDR
Exposure to violence and trauma-related distress in young children were associated with substantial decrements in IQ and reading achievement in this study.
Adverse Childhood Experiences: National and State-level Prevalence
TLDR
The prevalence of one or more ACEs among children ages birth through 17, as reported by their parents, is described using nationally representative data from the 2011/12 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH).
Effects on school outcomes in low-income minority youth: preliminary findings from a community-partnered study of a school-based trauma intervention.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests that receiving a school trauma intervention soon after screening compared to delaying treatment can result in better school grades.

Although elementary schools provide an opportunity for early identification and treatment of academic and psychological problems, relatively little is known about the types of symptoms being
Adverse childhood experiences: assessing the impact on health and school engagement and the mitigating role of resilience.
TLDR
It is suggested that building resilience-defined in the survey as "staying calm and in control when faced with a challenge," for children ages 6-17-can ameliorate the negative impact of adverse childhood experiences.
Academic growth curve trajectories from 1st grade to 12th grade: effects of multiple social risk factors and preschool child factors.
TLDR
Significant interactions between risk and child factors for students' grade point average (GPA) revealed that child factors had significant effects only for low-risk students and higher IQ and better mental health improved the GPA trajectories of low- risk children but did not influence the GPA trajectory of high-risk children.
Adverse childhood experiences reported by adults --- five states, 2009.
TLDR
The high prevalence of ACEs underscores the need for additional efforts at the state and local level to reduce and prevent child maltreatment and associated family dysfunction and further development and dissemination of trauma-focused services to treat stress-related health outcomes associated with ACEs.
