Webinar Recording Available: Adverse Childhood Experiences and Developmental Disabilities

For many healthcare providers, it can be challenging to distinguish between behaviors associated with a developmental disability and behaviors resulting from adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). It takes coordination across multiple disciplines to ensure early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of ACEs and/or developmental disabilities. On March 5, 2019, CHOP's Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI)  hosted a webinar titled "Crossroads of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Developmental Disabilities" that provided actionable information for healthcare providers to meet these challenges.
