What are ACEs?

ACEs are significant childhood traumas which can result in actual changes in brain development. These changes may affect a child’s learning ability, social skills, and can result in long-term health problems.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) views ACEs as one of the major health issues in the 21st century.
