Episode Description

Children who have experienced trauma are at significantly higher risk of having an ADHD diagnosis and moderate to severe ADHD symptoms. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences, such as child abuse and neglect, that may trigger chronic, harmful levels of stress in the body. Although ACEs are reported across all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups, specific types of trauma, such as racial discrimination, are uniquely experienced by children of color and may affect ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Listen and learn from Nicole M. Brown, M.D., MPH, MHS, about:

  • How ACEs are defined and identified
  • How specific types of ACEs may trigger or exacerbate ADHD
  • The overlap between trauma and ADHD symptoms, and tools used to distinguish between the two
  • Why it’s important to expand the traditional definition of ACEs to include experiences such as racial discrimination and bullying
