Many children coming into care were prenatally exposed to drugs and/or alcohol. We will explore risk factors for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, look at the connection between brain impairment and behaviors, including impact of trauma & discuss reframing and other strategies for professionals and parents to better support children who were prenatally exposed to substances. Participants will be able to: 1) Explore risk factors when illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are used during pregnancy; 2) Make connections between brain impairment and behaviors; 3) Explore diagnoses related to prenatal exposure; 4) Identify “red flags” for children who are struggling; 5) Consider co-morbid conditions, including impact of trauma; 6) Discuss reframing and other strategies. This webinar will help parents, caregivers and professionals.
