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.

Our new Level II courses are designed for professionals working in the Legal and Judicial, and Solicitor General systems. They provide learners with a better understanding of how FASD impacts a person’s involvement with the justice system, challenge some of the common assumptions about FASD and justice-involvement, and provide helpful strategies and suggestions for working with justice-involved individuals with FASD. There are also interactive case examples to help reinforce the course content.
