Adoption Matters - New FASD

New FASD with Judy Archer, MSW, RSW 

Recommended Audience:

  • Prospective and adoptive families and the professionals who work with them 

Our new 2.5 hour webinar on prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs with Judy Archer of the Adoption Council of Ontario includes a one-hour, Canadian documentary video that profiles the challenges and corresponding needs of those living with FASD. Perspectives of children and youth living with FASD, birth parents, adoptive parents and the professionals who serve them are all captured in this highly informative film. Following the video, more specific information about FASD will be presented.

Goals: Raise awareness about the lifelong impact of FASD as well as tools, strategies and resources for optimizing the child’s adaptive functioning.

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

  • Put FASD into context by explaining the extent of alcohol consumption in Canada
  • Pinpoint contributors to and symptoms of FASD: primary and secondary
  • Summarize the new diagnostic guidelines for FASD
  • Explain lifelong implications and realities of living with a brain-based disability
  • List strengths of children with FASD
