Presenters: Robert Kinscherff, PhD, JD, Christina Chambers, PhD, Kelly Casey, PhD, Lisa Albers Prock, MD, MPH, FAAP, Enid Watson, MDiv, Risa Grand, MD and William Edwards, Esq

The Cradle to Prison Pipeline is a well-documented phenomenon with disproportionate representation by people of color, individuals in poverty, and those with challenging behavioral, mental health and educational needs. This conference focuses upon an often “invisible” population in the pipeline, those with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). It will offer a description of FASD, review why individuals with FASD are more vulnerable to becoming court-involved and otherwise institutionalized, and discuss how to identify and support court-involved individuals with FASD.
