Legal Aspects of FASD's Training
I have made a new friend and his name is Jerrod Brown. He has started up an organization called the American Institute for Advancement of Forensic Studies and he is interested in FASD as it relates to forensics. He is also working on starting up a clinic called the FASD Clinic of Minnesota, and he gets FASD. His AIAFS group has several trainings upcoming, but one that many of you might be interested in is titled the Legal Aspects of FASD's, and Judge Tony Wartnik from Washington State will be coming into town to lead it.
The training is in January and I am going. I'm not sure if you are able to see the above flyer, but if you are interested in it, email me and I will send it to you with the registration form. If you write on it that I referred you, you will get 50% off- what a deal!!! Hope to see you all in January!
My name is Barb and I am a teenager at heart who is married to Michael, an Accountant. We have 4 adopted children, Akila-12, Imani-11, Hezekiah-10 and Zeke-9. I am a youth worker by profession but currently staying home attempting to manage our household. My hope for this blog is that it will help me to avoid cleaning my house (I actually don't need help with avoiding housework) and give me some serenity (I do need help with this). My oldest child, Akila, has Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and that is what I will focus on in this blog.
Here are a few books that I found helpful on FASD. I also put the link for the lockbox that we have liked the most for locking stuff up. We have one with meds in it, one with knives and scissors. I like that it is electronic and I don't have to use a key. Each of my kids has their own as well.
