‍"I highly recommend this conference; I have attended many times. Great opportunities to learn more about FASD from adults with an FASD (the real experts), practitioners and researchers. As a parent, I loved the opportunity to work with other parents. Hope to see you there!"

Conference Description:
 
Conference topics will focus specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD. As individuals diagnosed with FASD age, having knowledge across a broad spectrum of areas is important to ensure they are supported clinically and in their day-to-day functionality.
 
This conference will aim to examine relevant global research, programs and policies. Questions explored and discussed will include:
 
  • What can we learn from practice-based evidence?
  • What does existing or emerging research tell us?
  • Are the results transferable from country to country and/or from laboratory and clinical studies to real life?
  • Are there clinical implications of results from any of these areas of which we should be aware?
  • What are the changes in our thinking, practice and directions that will be required to improve outcomes?
