We are pleased to announce the Manitoba FASD Centre and FASD Justice Team are the recipients of this year’s Claudette Bradshaw FASD Innovation Award for their program supporting adults with FASD in the justice system.
In spite of overrepresentation, people with FASD often go undetected in legal settings, as they may not show obvious physical characteristics and their impairments in mental functioning, while substantial, may be somewhat hidden. Unfortunately, this failure to detect FASD may result in poor treatment outcomes, increased risk of reoffending, and overall poorer health.
We are extremely excited to announce our new special issue published today in the Journal of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (JFASD).
Due to the recent discoveries of unmarked grave sites at former residential schools, it is more important than ever that we take action to support Indigenous communities; remember the children who were sent away and never made it home; and honour the survivors. September 30this a day that opens the door to global discussion, education, and reconciliation.
