Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Training: Improving Outcomes for Youth, Families, and Agencies by Recognizing and Responding to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and Other Neurocognitive Impairments

Many youth struggle at home, in school, in treatment, in corrections, and in other systems.  In addition, a number of families involved in child welfare and other systems are viewed as being neglectful and uncaring.  This is often because these individuals do not respond to typical approaches that are utilized such as reward and consequences.  However, for a significant group, the failure to respond to these approaches is not due to willful behavior but rather to how the brain is processing information.  This training addresses the importance of recognizing an FASD or other neurocognitive issues in those with whom we work or live.  Why many who are not correctly recognized often receive misdiagnoses such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder and what this means for interventions is examined.  Strategies for improving outcomes for the individual, family, and agencies and systems that serve them are highlighted.

Participants will be able to:

Define terms regarding the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure Identify structures of the brain that are affected by prenatal alcohol exposure Examine the importance of screening and assessment for those who may have an FASD or other subtle cognitive impairments Discuss the effects of misdiagnosis and co-occurring disorders on implementing interventions Describe a positive focused system of care List strategies to improve outcomes for individuals with an FASD and their families.
