Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Interactive Data: District Overview
What are Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)?
ACEs are stressful events in a child's life that occur before they turn 18 that have potential to impact their future health and well-being.
In this module, we summarize eight thoroughly researched ACEs but acknowledge that many adverse experiences can rise to the level of an ACE and impact a child's future well-being. The ACEs we summarize are:
- Parental incarceration
- Alcohol misuse in the child's household
- Illegal drug use or misuse of prescription drugs in the child's household
- The struggle with depression and other mental illnesses in the child's household
- Emotional abuse
- Physical abuse
- Domestic violence
- Sexual abuse (of a relative or non-relative)
Data are hidden for groups of less than 20 students. If you select a district and can no longer see some or all graphs, it is because there are too few students to anonymously provide their data.
