Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

This course is designed to provide and build on foundational information about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and other Neurobehavioral conditions (FA/NB), the effects of other drugs on fetal development and the long-term effects of such exposure on children, adolescents and adults.  In addition, the range, degree, and variability of effects of prenatal drug exposure are explored.  A conceptual foundation is provided to support development of effective strategies and facilitate long-term collaboration.  Concrete, pragmatic examples of effective strategies and improved outcomes for people with FA/NB are central to this course. The intent is to provide a common language for those working with people with FA/NB, their family systems, and to facilitate communication and support ongoing networking and collaboration.  The long-term goal is to contribute to prevention of FA/NB.

Program Structure

The course consists of four 4.5-hour sessions, which can take place over 4 days or 4 weeks. The course can accommodate 30 participants per session.
