#20210126- WEBINAR: FASD: Strategies to Deal with the Big 3
This pre-recorded webinar on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder may meet requirements for child foster care licensing so please have your licensing worker review and confirm.
(January 2021) Some of the most common symptoms with children who have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders are lying, stealing and raging – “the Big 3”. In this workshop, we will discuss the neuro-behavioral aspects of why these behaviors are common and talk about strategies that can help parents and professionals get a handle on these frustrating behaviors. We will dive into other symptoms as well and strategies that promote attachment, healing and connectedness. If you have a child or adolescent who struggles with these behaviors and is not diagnosed with an FASD, you are welcome to join us as interventions that are recommended for children with an FASD are also recommended for children with any type of trauma history.
