Parenting & Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

Mon Aug 17 | 12 – 1:30pm

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 any learning and behavioral challenges so they—together—can “try differently.”

During this webinar, participants will learn about:
  • Fetal risk factors when illicit drugs, tobacco, and alcohol are used during pregnancy
  • Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) and the connection between brain impairment and behavior
  • Diagnoses under the FASD umbrella
  • “Red flags” for an FASD diagnosis
  • Comorbid conditions, including the impact of trauma
  • Reframing and other strategies

Speaker: 
Barb Clark, North American Council on Adoptable Children

This session was originally planned as a workshop at the National Foster Parent Association annual conference.
