Adverse Childhood Experiences & Childhood Trauma (ACES)

As early childhood professionals, we need to begin to come to grips with what ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) is, and how it impacts our lives, and the children and families we serve. The goal is not only to increase awareness of the scope of this issue, but together to strategize how we can, with greater intentionality, provide the best childcare, preschool experiences and family support services possible for children and families with high ACE scores. This training examines the role that adverse childhood experiences have on future health and well-being.

This class is facilitated by Pat McReynolds. Pat McReynolds is an Early Childhood Development Specialist & Consultant and currently the Mahaska / Wapello Empowerment Area Director. She is the owner and operator of Genesis Development Center and is also a community stakeholder at the state level with Early Childhood Iowa.

Learning in Nature

Today's children and families often have limited connections with the natural environment. Richard Louv calls this phenomenon, 'nature-deficit disorder' in his book, The Last Child in the Woods, in which he opened the nation's eyes to the developmental effects that nature has on our children. In this class learn about the research based benefits of connecting to nature, including reducing ADD symptoms and stress, improving social relations, self-discipline, creativity and problem solving, and supporting multiple development domains (intellectual, social, spiritual, physical).

This class is taught by Anne Michel, Early Childhood Consultant at GPAEA. She has a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Special Education, and experience as a Home Intervention Teacher, Preschool Special Education Teacher, Play Coach, College Professor, and CEO of an Animal Sanctuary.
