I am glad that this topic is being explored. As a person with a very high ACE score who has had the opportunity to mitigate most of the impacts over many years, I want to assure we screen for a purpose. I do not wish to be screened every year at a well-woman visit just for the purposes of a doctor checking that a screening has been completed. The screen has to be followed up with "have you had opportunities to address these ACEs as an adult and how do you feel these experiences are currently impacting you?"

All of the Tennessee Department of Health funded evidence-based home visiting programs in Tennessee are screening for ACEs of parents and caregivers enrolled in the programs. This is accompanied by a conversation with them of how this may or may not impact their parenting practices and what supports would be helpful to them currently. I will continue to follow this conversation.
