Topic: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders from a Trauma Lens. Although fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) are twice as common as autism, this disorder often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Professionals and parents will learn the reason behind children’s learning and behavior challenges and trauma informed caregiving strategies that focus on relationship, connection, and reducing the child’s anxiety
Topic: Trauma-Responsive Strategies Children and adolescents who have experienced trauma have unique brain wiring and are often at a mixture of developmental ages. Participants will learn new approaches to use with children and adolescents who have trauma histories which will help you to understand them better and improve communication and relationships. The strategies we will cover are recommended for in-utero trauma such as FASD and also for trauma they may have experienced after birth.
