Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder  101

Indiana NOFAS (National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome), Inc. is hosting a no-cost learning experience for parents, caregivers, policy-makers, and professionals at various locations around the state. 

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 or your organization can also access one-on-one guidance and technical assistance from INOFAS to help you incorporate these interventions into your programming.

FASD 101 participants will earn 6 CEUs from the Indiana Credentialing Association of Addiction and Drug Abuse (ICAADA). FASD 101 and the subsequent technical assistance for implementing prenatal alcohol interventions is provided at no cost to participants through a grant from the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction.
