The Importance of Recognizing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as Key to Improving Outcomes for Individuals, Families, and Agencies10:00 AM » 3:00 PM
Target Audience: Clinical Professionals, State Center and State Hospital Staff, and Provider Staff including Direct Support Professionals.
Description: There are many reasons for “difficult” behaviors and lack of response to typical approaches. One of these is prenatal exposure to alcohol. As our diagnostic capability for FASD is extremely limited throughout the country, most individuals with an FASD are not correctly diagnosed. They may receive misdiagnoses of Autism, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and others. This session provides an overview of the latest knowledge about FASD, examines the brain basis of behaviors in those with an FASD, illustrates the importance of correctly identifying individuals who may have an FASD, and provides strategies to improve outcomes.
