Join us Fridays in April for webinar sessions on identifying and diagnosing conditions on the continuum of FASD, addressing stigma and bias related to prenatal alcohol exposure, caring for children with an FASD, and neurobehavioral disorder associated with prenatal alcohol exposure (ND-PAE). The webinars are open to all clinical personnel with practicing primary care clinicians strongly encouraged to attend. We look forward to seeing you April!

Session 3 will provide primary care clinicians with the tools they need to treat children with an FASD across the lifespan. The session will focus on identifying and managing neurobehavioral and medical concerns at different developmental stages. Participants will learn about medical, therapeutic, and pharmaceutical considerations. Faculty will present evidence-based interventions that are applicable to community-based primary care pediatricians and discuss approaches to building parent knowledge and working with the school system to access services through individualized education programs (IEPs) and 504 Plans. Support services and resources for providers, families, and teachers/schools will also be covered.
