Do you serve children who are at risk for, or have suspected/confirmed prenatal exposure to drugs and alcohol? I am available for hire to train the clinicians and teachers on your team about FASDs - how to recognize them, where to send your clients for diagnosis and evaluation, as well as how to tailer mental health services, speech, occupational, and developmental therapies, and classroom education to meet the differing needs of children with FASDs.
In addition, the most beneficial way to serve families of children with confirmed or suspected prenatal exposure to drugs or alcohol is to educate parents (and team members) about this brain-based disability and the behavior manifestations that accompany. By helping parents understand the difference between willful disobedience and neurobehavioral disorders, parents are more likely to make environmental changes and accommodations PRIOR to behaviors escalating. In doing so, children's needs are met, challenging behaviors decrease, parents confidence increases, and stronger attachments are formed. After a decade of trainings, research, parenting, and consulting, I have written a comprehensive training specifically for parents to give them the education they need to parent the children in their lives. They will create an individual developmental profile of their child (with my help), have a detailed plan for changes to make in the house and environment, as well as accommodations and responses needed for their child's current needs.
Research shows us that an estimated 1 in 20 children have an FASD and 80-90% are not diagnosed. Let us work together to identify, evaluate, support, and equip children and families.
