Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD): What Is It and What Do We Do About It?

Of all substances of abuse, alcohol causes the most serious long-term effects in a fetus, resulting in permanent brain damage. Many children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders often go undiagnosed and suffer lifelong social challenges, serious mental
health problems, and involvement with the juvenile justice system. Proper identification and intervention can help prevent many of these challenges. Attendees will learn to identify red flags & signs that may indicate brain-based behaviors as a result of prenatal alcohol exposure. 2 CEs, 2.5 CLEs
