5th National Biennial Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD

Event Date: 
04/18/2012 - 04/21/2012

This conference will provide a forum to share research, experience and practice in order to discuss how we can effectively sustain and enhance the lives of adolescents and adults with FASD, their families, service providers, and communities. Are we adequately addressing and supporting the needs and rights of adolescents and adults with FASD within our society? Do individuals with FASD have timely and appropriate access to health care, housing, social services, legal and civil justice and employment? How can we build on the strengths of existing systems to identify and address barriers and move forward to provide effective ethical support? How do we provide focused and targeted approaches across services, and systems to create an integrated and collaborative approach to supporting individuals with FASD?

It will be essential for those living or working with adults with FASD. It will also be of critical interest for those supporting adolescents with FASD and planning for their futures.
