On June 12, 2012, at 1 p.m. E.T., the American Bar Association will host the Webinar, "Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD): What You Need to Know to Help Your Clients."
Children and youth within the justice system are disproportionately affected by FASD, with ramifications for a variety of cases including delinquency, abuse and neglect, and education. This Webinar will help lawyers recognize individuals with FASD, especially those with IQ's above 70. Speakers will discuss how courts should treat individuals with FASD, the services they should receive, and the accommodations that courts should provide.
Continuing legal education credits will be available. Registration is available online.
