This workshop will provide information about FASD and the effects of alcohol and other drugs on the behaviors of children, adolescents, and adults. FASD is a brain-based, neurobehavioral condition. The workshop will educate you on the current status of research, and will present an evidence-based best practices approach. The goal is to increase understanding, reduce frustration, and expand options. Case examples of successful diagnosis, treatment, and accommodation are central to this training.
