Session #1 – Oct 20 & 22, 2020
Zoom! 9am to noon both days
There is strong evidence and consensus among families and professionals that individuals affected by prenatal alcohol exposure have unique needs at each stage of development. Case Managers and caregivers of affected individuals need relevant and effective service to be able to sustain the energy and skill set needed to “hang in there” with these challenging situations.
Children, adolescents and adults with FASD have complex medical, psychological and social needs. They are difficult to provide stability for and existing resources are not often user friendly for these families. These sessions will provide a framework for considering these issues.

Session #2 – October 27 & 29, 2020
Zoom! 9am to noon
Many outcomes for individuals with FASD have been negatively affected by the lack of understanding of their complex neurodevelopmental disorder.
This is an advanced workshop for participants who have had previous training in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Participants will have learned in previous training how to both recognize and understand the complicated issues that surround FASD. This session will give the participants an opportunity to learn how to plan for their care and to recognize the impacts that the developmental trajectory of FASD has on case planning.
