#20230419_4 WEBINAR: Failure to Launch; How to Support Adults with FASD




(April 2023) [Spring Summit] Failure to Launch; How to Support Adults with FASD

Often, we think parenting is easier after age 18, and that our work here is done.  This is not always the case, especially if our kids have a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.  We will discuss strategies and ideas on how to walk the fine line of being a support for our adult kids while having boundaries and teaching them interdependence.

Barb Clark is a parent who has made a ton of mistakes and has lived to tell.  She is now passionate about sharing her mistakes with other parents and professionals to make their journey smoother than hers was.  Through humor and real-life experiences, she shares information about how trauma impacts children’s brains, and how to move away from consequence-based strategies and instead use strategies that promote relationship and attachment building.  She has a particular passion for educating others on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, trauma-informed parenting strategies, and parent support networks which she does through her position at the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) as well as through her work as an FASD Consultant.  Barb is a parent to 4 young adults, one whom is diagnosed with an FASD.
