“Moment to Moment: Teens Growing Up With FASDs” explores the lives of four adolescents with FASDs (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders) and the effect that prenatal alcohol exposure has had and continues to have on their journeys to finding independence, fulfillment, and understanding the world around them. The hour long movie will be followed by an hour long discussion with the film’s Executive Producer and nationally recognized FASD expert, Dr. Ira Chasnoff.
This full day training aims to educate parents, mental health and other child-serving professionals about the signs and symptoms of FASD, and to provide a toolbox for working with these children and adolescents to help them succeed. This training features Moment to Moment, Dr. Chasnoff’s hour-long film on adolescents with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders moving toward independence.
