Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and Adoption

This page is a description for a live webinar scheduled November 2nd, 2022. If you'd like to register for this conference, please return to this page once registration opens in September.

In-utero substance exposure is a common occurrence in children placed for adoption. Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) have wide-ranging impacts on children and significant implications for the families raising them. This presentation will focus on better understanding these conditions, and working with medical professionals to diagnose and treat a FASD. In addition, this speaker will discuss how adoption professionals can support prospective parents’ decision-making about a match for a child with substance exposure, and strategies for post adoption support for these families.

Barb Clark – Parent Support and Training Specialist, North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC)
