Hi there, has anyone adapted the ace-questionnaire so you can use it for children (asking the parents about possible ace's of their children)? If so what are your experiences?

My colleague and I are doing an online parenting class where we do an introduction to ACEs. We have the parents do their own ACEs (and of course they often do the ACE for their child in their head). I think there is a lot of shame around ACEs, so what we do is offer a resiliency questionnaire for the parents to help them identify their area of need, and then we offer several assessments for the child that address the needs of the child (a resiliency assessment for children and a sensory assessment for children).
I had seen an "Instruction Guide" for the World Health Organization's (WHO) ACE International Questionaire, on their website, which I assumed provided guidance about how to frame questions-for children, .... There was a post elsewhere on ACEsConnection, in the past few days, addressing this issue, but I don't immediately recall where.
