Children with FASD account for 1 in 20 children and adolescents in the United States according to the CDC. During this training our presenter will discuss identification, diagnosis and prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). From early ages, infants and toddlers with FASD may be identified to have developmental disabilities such as speech/language delays, sensory and motor problems, impulsivity and hyperactivity, and mood dysregulation and autonomic arousal. Specific educational strategies are required for education of individuals and often parents, caregivers and educators are ill equipped to deal with the complex challenges in the classroom, home and community. This presentation aims to highlight the etiology, identification, and prevention of the leading preventable cause of neurodevelopmental disorders and to explore a neurodevelopmental approach to treatment.
