COURSE OF THE MONTH
“Alcohol Use & Pregnancy –what are the lifelong effects?
11th February 2016
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the leading, known, preventable intellectual disability and is only caused by prenatal alcohol exposure.
Up to 40,000 babies are born every year with this condition in the UK, though it is unlikely that many would be diagnosed.
Naturally these babies grow up and will require support throughout their lives.
This course looks at:
- the cause of FASD – effects of drinking alcohol during pregnancy
- the long term effects on children as they grow up into adulthood
- behaviours and needs of someone with FASD throughout their different life stages
- how to support children and young people affected by FASD
“Excellent Training – More professionals need to know more about this disorder – it has certainly answered many questions.”
Cost: Voluntary sector £135.00 / Statutory sector £145.00 includes lunch & course handouts
