Parenting a child with a disorder on the fetal alcohol spectrum can present many challenges for foster and adoptive families. It is vital for these families and the professionals who support them to understand the reasons behind the learning and behavioral challenges so they, together, can “try differently.”
Participants will be able to:
- Explore risk factors when illicit drugs, tobacco, and alcohol are used during pregnancy;
- Describe FASD and connection between brain impairment and behaviors;
- Explore diagnoses under FASD umbrella;
- Identify “red flags” for FASD diagnosis;
- Consider co-morbid conditions, including impact of trauma;
- Discuss reframing and other strategies
