Date(s) & Time:

This training addresses the importance of recognizing a FASD in those with whom we live. FASD is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and is more common than Autism or Down Syndrome. Most children/youth with FASD look like their peers but their brain damage cannot be seen. Because of this, FASD is known as an invisible disability. Children/youth may display behaviors that repeatedly get them into trouble. Strategies for improving outcomes for the child/youth, family, and programs that serve them are highlighted.
