NY Licensees ONLY - Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and Adoption

This page is a description for a virtual conference session scheduled for November 2nd, 2022. If you'd like to register for this virtual conference, please do so here.

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.
