3rd Hawaii Conference on FASD

Jan 29, 2022 | Conference

Description

FASD encompasses a range of effects on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol. FASD is a lifelong disability. Individuals affected by FASD display various daily living challenges and are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. FASD-informed education and interventions are critical for the success of individuals and their families. This conference highlights the trends in FASD information, education, and awareness. It is our hope to integrate the knowledge from this conference into daily practice and positively impact the lives of those affected by FASD.

Goals and Objectives

• Identify and explore important FASD trends and how to apply this information to individuals with FASD, their families, caregivers, and systems of care.

• Educate and build community awareness about the lifespan needs of individuals with FASD

• Expand FASD-informed services within agencies, departments, programs, and all systems of care for individuals and families impacted by FASD

Target Audience

Individuals with FASD, parents, family members, social service providers such as social workers, psychologists, therapists, substance abuse professionals, care coordinators, counselors, probation officers, program directors, and educators. We welcome everyone in the community to join in the collaboration of support and aloha for those affected by FASD.
