These disorders are currently recorded as the leading cause of mental retardation in the United States. FASD occurs in 10 per 1,000 live births. FASD is not a diagnostic term, but refers to conditions such as: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Effects, Alcohol-Related Neuron-Developmental Disorder and Alcohol-related birth defects. The estimated lifetime costs for one child with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome alone is $2 million. This workshop will explain the damage that alcohol can have on the developing brain and provide practical strategies most effective when dealing with FASD within a family setting, foster home environment, group home and/or day program. Individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders present increasing challenges and often utilize a large portion of community based crisis stabilization services. This workshop is highly recommended for anyone who provides support services to individuals within the developmental disability community.
