Caregiver Success! Part 1: Parents of Children with FASD Share What Works

Presenter: Adrienne Bashista

Director, Families Affected by FASD (FAFASD)

Sponsored by Families Affected by FASD (FAFASD)

Even if their children are diagnosed (which is rare), parents of children with FASDs often can't rely on FASD-informed support systems, professionals, school personnel, or even their own parenting instincts when figuring out what works for their families.

 

This webinar will feature a panel of parents who have "been there, done that," and will share what has worked for their families as they've learned about FASD and how to change the environment to support and accommodate the brain differences associated with prenatal alcohol exposure.

Preventing Secondary Characteristics of FASD: What Does the Research Say?

February 24, 2022

3:00-5:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Presenter: Adrienne Bashista

Director, Families Affected by FASD (FAFASD)

Sponsored by Families Affected by FASD (FAFASD)

Prenatal alcohol exposure leads to changes in the developing brain that have lifelong impact in the affected individual. These brain changes express themselves behaviorally. These neurobehavioral impacts, while different for each individual, are considered "primary characteristics" of FASD. If the person with an FASD doesn't receive appropriate supports and provided environmental modifications and accommodations, this can lead to frustration, anger, depression, anxiety and other predictable manifestations of unmet needs. These are called "secondary characteristics" of FASD. If we can successfully meet the needs of people with FASDs, the secondary characteristics can be mitigated or even prevented entirely.

 

This webinar will examine what current research says about preventing secondary characteristics in individuals with an FASD.
