Successfully Parenting A Child With Fetal Alcohol Exposure: Understanding FASD and Incorporating Parenting Strategies that Work- Lincoln
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are a group of conditions that can occur in a person whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. The effects of fetal alcohol exposure can include physical problems and problems with behavior and learning. A spectrum disorder mean that no two individuals are affected in exactly the same way. Some children may experience fairly mild long term effects and some children will experience severe impairment. Participants in this workshop will understand some of the potential impacts of prenatal alcohol exposure on a child, and the challenges parents may face when raising a child diagnosed with a FASD. There will be a particular emphasis on parenting strategies that can help the child diagnosed with a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder to meet his or her full potential. Tips on how to locate appropriate services for the affected child and his or her family will also be covered.
