The Un-Diagnosed Diagnosis: Parenting a Child with Prenatal Alcohol Exposure - Lincoln

Tuesday, April 17, 2018
11:30 am1:00 pm
Nebraska Children's Home Society | 4700 Valley Road | Lincoln, NE 68510

with Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT,

Current statistics show that at least one in every one hundred children in North America have some form of a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is an umbrella term used to describe a range of disabilities. This means that no two individuals are affected the same. Participants will understand the impact of prenatal alcohol exposure on a child, and the potential challenges parents face when raising a child with FASD. Additionally, participants will gain a better understanding of how these children experience the world, and special parenting considerations and techniques.



Right Turn® is a collaboration between Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska & Nebraska Children’s Home Society.
