MEETING THE NEEDS OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES DEALING WITH FETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDERS
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) may be 10 to15 times more prevalent among foster/adopted children compared to the general population, with many children remaining undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Diagnosing FASD is a challenge and many children with this condition struggle with physical and behavioral issues. Often, child welfare and treatment systems are challenged to effectively address the child’s needs in the absence of a definitive diagnosis and approach. This webinar will focus on FASD by addressing the following:
• The impact of FASD on multiple systems
• “Better practices” for screening, diagnosing, and serving children with FASD and training staff
• Considerations of infants susceptible to FASD in Plans of Safe Care
• Exploring issues faced by caregivers and families caring for children with FASD
• Ideas for moving forward to better identify and serve children with FASD and their caregivers and families

This webinar is intended for team members participating in the County Touchpoints Learning Collaboratives and their partners in health, behavioral health, dependency courts, community providers and advocates, and attorneys addressing child welfare concerns.

Presenters:
Sid Garner, President, Children and Family Futures, Inc.
Kathryn W. Page, PhD, President, FASD NorCal

There will be opportunities for questions and discussion.

Feb 1, 2022 10:30 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
