FASD Fundamentals and Intervention Strategies

FASD Fundamentals and Intervention Strategies is a new workshop developed to meet the training and education needs of medical and allied health care providers who work directly with individuals who may be affected by prenatal alcohol exposure. 

It includes an introduction to the cause of FASDs, prevention, and how to develop practical individualized interventions for people affected by prenatal alcohol exposure.

This workshop has been changed to a combined FASD Foundations (FASD 101) & FASD 201 Workshop. Please see the FASD Foundation and FASD 201 pages for information on target audiences and learning objectives.
