How do adverse childhood experiences impact later life?

15 February 2018

The Science and Technology Committee holds the first evidence session on its Evidence-based early-years intervention inquiry.

This is the first session of the Committee's inquiry into ‘evidence-based early-years intervention'.

The first panel will review the evidence base linking adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) to negative impacts in later life and discuss priorities for future research.

The second panel will focus on how this evidence base can be used to inform delivery of early interventions, and the opportunities, risks and challenges in doing so.
