WEBINAR ON FASD IN THE YOUTH JUSTICE SYSTEM: WEDNESDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 12PM

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is a lifelong condition relating to permanent brain damage caused by fetal alcohol exposure.  The majority of young people who have FASD live with significant cognitive, behavioural and learning difficulties.  Being FASD informed is important for all workers who support young people. The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre is hosting a free webinar on FASD on Wednesday 29 November with guest presenter Dr Raewyn Mutch from the Alcohol, Pregnancy and FASD department at Telethon Kids Institute.  The webinar will run for approximately one hour, and will discuss FASD with a focus on the prevalence of FASD in the youth justice system.
