Proposal for Presentation

This presentation will share how adverse childhood experiences impact a child’s ability to achieve success at school, as well as achieve optimal health and well-being when transitioning into adulthood. Information about basic brain development will provide insight into how some children experience a sense of safety and are receptive to learning, while others don’t have the capacity to focus and are prone to developing mental illness. In an era when bullying and domestic violence are prevalent, educators need to be aware of the signs of adverse childhood experiences. Classrooms should be places where core protective systems are developed. A trauma-sensitive classroom and school environment can counteract the social emotional stressors that burden children and interfere with their education. This presentation will encourage educators to compassionately interact with students to support their social emotional development. Until this is achieved, it will be a challenge for some students to experience meaningful learning in K-20 classrooms.
