Practical Essentials of FASD-Informed Care: Building Competence to Serve a Common Disability Across the Lifespan - Webinar - March 15, 10:00-11:30 a.m. (MT)

March 15, 10:00-11:30 a.m. (MT)

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) impact an estimated 1-5% of people in the United States. Yet, most professionals and community members have not had the opportunity to learn about this common condition and how to best support people with FASD. This presentation will use case-based learning to illustrate how attendees can begin to implement FASD-informed care across the lifespan in their practice. Useful and practical resources will be offered.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the advantages of identifying fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and implementing FASD-informed care in your practice.
2. Recognize how stigma interferes with FASD-informed care.
3. Identify at least one resource to continue learning about FASD and FASD-informed care.

Intended audience: psychologists, medical providers, individuals with FASD and their families
