Dayton to hold adverse childhood experiences presentation


Kids who act out in school are often thought of as troublemakers. But research shows they might be suffering due to adverse childhood experiences.

The Dayton School District is working to address the effects of ACEs by training teachers and informing the community.

The district will hold a presentation featuring Teri Barila and Mark Brown, Resilience Trumps ACEs co-founders, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the elementary school multipurpose room. A light dinner will be served, and child care will be provided.

“This has the potential to create success for students who right now are struggling to achieve in school,” Superintendent Doug Johnson said.
