Receiving a diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the first step in connecting a child to the appropriate supports and beginning to plan for the future. This webinar will provide awareness and understanding of the multidisciplinary assessment for FASD in preschool children with prenatal alcohol exposure. Dr. Ana Hanlon-Dearman and Dr. Ghita Wiebe will explain the process of diagnosis, the benefits of diagnosis, and describe the current state of preschool FASD multidisciplinary assessments. Ms. Mohr is a caregiver to a child with FASD. She will speak to the impact of receiving her daughter’s diagnosis. There will be 10-15 minutes at the end of the presentation for attendees to have questions answered by the panelists.
