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.
