Cover Story (view full-size image): International research shows that ACEs can have a harmful impact on the development of children and their mental and physical health throughout life. Unfortunately, children with intellectual disabilities and their families are still underrepresented in ACEs research, while deficiencies in intellectual and adaptive functioning can increase vulnerability to adversity. In the present exploratory study in Dutch residential care, in which 69 case-files of children with intellectual disabilities were explored, it was found that almost half of the children experienced at least 2 ACEs or more. The study showed that the number of ACEs in the children was related to the presence of ACEs in parents, family living characteristics, and attachment-, trauma-, and stressor-related disorders. These results stress the need for a transgenerational approach to ACEs research. View this paper
