Please join Dianne O'Connor, Regional Coordinator for Parent to Parent of NYS, as she presents the webinar Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) on Wednesday, Tuesday, Dec. 4 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. Children prenatally exposed to alcohol become adults with FASD. Understanding that the permanent brain damage caused by prenatal alcohol exposure may be the reason 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 what 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.
