Adoption Matters - FASD and Childhood Trauma

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and Childhood Trauma with Lauren Ireland, MA, BCBA.

Lauren discusses the causes/contributors, symptoms and life-long impacts of two brain-based, physical disabilities that are not uncommon in children who are currently awaiting an adoptive placement as well as those who have already been placed on adoption:  prenatal exposure to alcohol and childhood trauma. Of equal importance, parents and professionals alike will learn about the skill-based parenting approach as well as the tools and strategies that have proven to be highly effective with these children. Given the disproportionate number of waiting children with suspected FASD, anyone who is parenting a child with confirmed or suspected FASD or historical trauma, or both, as well as any potential adoptive and permanency planning parents or professionals working with children and families will benefit enormously from this thought-provoking, highly informative, educational webcast. 

Goal:  Raise awareness about the lifelong impact of two brain-based, physical disabilities:  FASD and childhood trauma

Objectives:  By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

    • Identify contributors to and symptoms of both FASD and childhood trauma
    • Explain the systemic, lifelong impacts of prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs on the fetus and the developing child
    • Describe the skill-based approach to parenting children with FASD and why it is more effective than other parenting approaches (i.e., motivational model)
    • Identify specific parenting tools and strategies that have proven effective over the long-term, with children with FASD
    • List common attributes and strengths of children with FASD
    • Know how to find resources and services that will heighten their understanding about FASD even further
    • Discuss the importance of being well-informed about FASD and childhood trauma, pre and/or post-placement
