LTE Session #3

3:00 pm – 3:50 pm – Introduction to ACES – Adverse Childhood Experiences: Meeting Room E/F
We know that the brain’s architecture is built over time and from the bottom up, much like a house. Sturdy architecture is built when children have stable, positive experiences and relationships with caring adults at home and in the community. We’ve learned that severe or repeated exposure to harmful experiences without the support of caring adults can cause toxic stress responses in children, which can weaken the brain’s architecture, leaving children vulnerable to a range of health, learning and behavior problems across their lifespan. Fortunately, research also suggests that there are things we can do to buffer toxic stress, preventing or reversing its effects.

3:00 pm – 3:50 pm – Financial Literacy: Meeting Room G
Learn simple ways to keep your financial house in order to create opportunities for saving. Attendees will be able to identify several resources for state employees to assist them in various financial and retirement planning decisions.
