Parents Helping Parents and the Inclusion Collaborative created this webinar for parents, families, and professionals who live and/or work with an individual who has a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). It provides information about the difficult behaviors associated with this brain-based disability and strategies to address them. During the 75-minute presentation, with extended Q/A, Nate explains how FASD and early childhood trauma have a lifelong impact on individuals and their families.
FASD is a unique disability that differs from all others and can present emotionally difficult challenges for families. An estimated 5% of all children and adults in the U.S. have an FASD and there is no current system equipped to help them. Embedded in the webinar are answers to frequently asked questions from families raising children with FASD, along with practical advice and strategies. The information is good for family members, friends, community members, and professionals who work with an individual who has FASD.
