Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are the number one cause of developmental disabilities in North America. This training will be a great resource for both the general population of foster/adoptive parents as well as foster/adoptive parents who are caring for children affected with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. Deb Stuczynski-Sumiec will guide participants on a solution driven journey through research and personal experience.
Deb Stuczynski-Sumiec, CSW has received over 70 hours of training on FASDs that through UW-Madison's School of Family and is also the parent through adoption of one amazing daughter who came to her family at the age of 8-1/2 months; was diagnosed with an Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder at the age of 6; and is now successfully navigating through life advocating for herself with an FASD.
