It is not uncommon for a person with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) to have been diagnosed with a different developmental disability or mental health condition. There are various overlapping symptoms; however, the approach to these students/children/clients differs based on the etiology of the symptoms. While there are techniques that may address the behavioral and learning needs of individuals with other diagnoses, these same techniques may not prove effective and may even exacerbate the difficulties of student/child/client with FAS/FASD. This presentation will help the attendee identify red flags and signs which may indicate that a child may have brain-based difficulties as a result of prenatal alcohol exposure. This presentation will also help attendees shift their perspective in order to begin to view social/emotional problems, difficult behaviors, and learning challenges of these individuals as a symptom of brain dysfunction and not willful defiance and opposition. 2.00 CEUs for Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and Certified Master Social Worker.
