Fetal Alcohol spectrum disorders are costly, life-long disabilities. Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders are known as hidden disabilities because the vast majority of children and adults living with the impairments are not diagnosed. This conference will discuss how a parent or professional can recognize and provide the most optimal environments, give the best therapies and provide optimal medical care for children with FASDs.



Course Outcome:
After the conference, participants will be able to discuss how a parent or professional can recognize and provide the most optimal environments, give the best therapies and provide optimal medical care for children with FASDs.
