April 28: Strategies to Improve Treatment Outcomes for Individuals with FASD and Their Families
This is a continuation of the webinar that was presented on January 27, 2021 that provided information on FASD and its manifestations in treatment and other settings, with a focus on the brain basis of the behaviors that are often misidentified as willful, manipulative behaviors. In this webinar, we focus on a discussion of the importance of identifying strengths in those with an FASD and those surrounding them, and strategies that can be implemented in treatment settings that can result in better outcomes for the individual and the setting.
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify five strengths typically seen in individuals with an FASD.
- Describe how therapeutic approaches can be modified for those with an FASD.
- Discuss what adults with an FASD have said is important to them.
