Although prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) affects children’s behavior and learning, there has been limited attention to specific methods for intervention and treatment for children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). This inattention has resulted in misdiagnosis and a lack of treatment options for this high-risk group. Both caregivers and professionals working with children affected by FASD need tools to support positive outcomes. In this webinar, we will review available methods found to be useful in the treatment of alcohol-affected children. The implications for management of behavior and learning will be discussed.
Learning Objectives: (3)
1) Understanding the effect of PAE on behavior and learning.
2) Review the status of research on intervention and treatment.
3) Become familiar with some of the methods for intervention and treatment.
