Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)

November 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join Dianne O’Connor, Regional Coordinator for Parent to Parent of NYS, as she presents a webinar on Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
Children prenatally exposed to alcohol become adults with FASD. Understanding that the permanent brain damage caused by prenatal alcohol exposure may be the reasons individuals with FASD fail in school, treatment, in the workforce, and with relationships, can help us to form strategies that may work and help the individual have a successful happy life.
This webinar will give a brief overview of FASD, identify some of the challenges of raising an individual with FASD over the lifespan and look at strategies that could be useful when living or working with them.
