Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder 101

A no-cost learning experience for parents, caregivers, policy-makers, professionals, and more.

Are you a parent, caregiver, or service provider to a child who has trouble seeing the connection between choices and consequences, has difficulty with age-appropriate attentiveness, continues to make poor choices no matter how much appropriate instruction they receive, and who struggles to hold it together at even the smallest disruption of routine? Could prenatal alcohol exposure be a factor? If so, you are why FASD 101 exists!

The Indiana affiliate of the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (INOFAS) is presenting FASD 101, an interactive 6-hour workshop to heighten awareness and understanding of FASD. You will learn how prenatal alcohol consumption can affect a child in utero, common disorders on the FASD spectrum and their symptoms, and positive interventions for common problematic behaviors. You will also receive a review of prenatal alcohol interventions that positively impact prenatal alcohol exposure and the number of children born on the FASD spectrum. You or your organization can also access one-on-one guidance and technical assistance from INOFAS to help you incorporate these interventions into your programming.
