Completing Creating an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Sensitive Classroom will contribute 6 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 3.2.2, 3.3.2, 4.1.2, 4.2.2, 4.3.2 and 6.2.2  from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

 

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) harm children’s developing brains and lead to changing how they respond to stress and damaging their immune systems so profoundly that the effects show up decades later. ACEs cause much of our burden of chronic disease, most mental illness, and are at the root of most violence.

Schools that have integrated ACEs informed practices into classrooms, playgrounds and school policies have seen amazing results, including

90 % reductions in suspensions and significant increases in test scores from students with high ACE scores.  Evidence has shown that without intervention people with high ACE scores have higher incidences of chronic disease (such as cancer and heart disease), mental illness and more likely to be perpetrators and/or victims of violence.

This NESA endorsed workshop will assist teachers and school staff to:

  • Develop an understanding of ACEs;
  • Understand the impact of ACEs on learning;
  • Implement ACEs sensitive approaches to lesson planning;
  • Understand evidence based techniques related to self-regulation and brain integration;
  • Identify resources to maintain their own physical, social, emotional and spiritual well-being.

 

Who should attend this workshop?

Recommended for NSW Proficient Level Teachers: K to 6.
