FAS/FAE (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Fetal Alcohol Effect): The tragic legacy of drug abuse is lived out by the children whose lives are forever changed by prenatal substance exposure. Often it is believed by families and professionals that alcohol because it is legal, is harmless, even when used in pregnancy.

This course will provide an overview of how this prenatal exposure potentially impacts the developing brain and subsequently can have short- and long-term effects on children's health and development from birth through adolescence, knowing what to observe for supports, early identification, and integrating strategies that support best outcomes.
