Using Adverse Childhood Experiences Exposure to Identify Risks to Future Health and Well-Being for Children Receiving Services

High ACE scores in childhood, particularly 4 for or more exposures, indicate that in adulthood those persons are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes, certain types of heart disease, depression and substance abuse issues considered to be related to chronic stress. This offers an opportunity to examine probabilities and better target or cluster services to assist individuals and families by recognizing adverse experiences and the potential outcomes.
