Introduction to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder or F.A.S.D. is one of the best kept secrets that many have heard of but know little or nothing about. It is the result of prenatal babies being exposed to alcohol and is a brain-based invisible injury.
The effects are far-ranging, including physical, cognitive, behavioral, memory and learning disabilities with life-long implications.
This presentation is offered in the hopes that we learn to understand the nature of this disorder and to help us recognize that not all behaviours are the result of children or adults who are stubborn or misbehaved, or have been influenced negatively by social or peer pressure.
Suzanne is the founder and CEO of Medigene Services Inc which Provides diagnostic and assessment services to children, youth and adults with known or suspected prenatal exposure to alcohol. Services include follow-up evaluations, case conferencing with key people in the individual’s life, and help in accessing services and supports.
Dinner will be served. If you have any dietary restrictions, please note these in the comments section when you register.View Event
