West Metro Critical Thinking Club

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) - A walk through this lifelong sentence to the brain. FASD is an umbrella term describing the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother drank alcohol during pregnancy. These effects may include physical, mental, behavioral, and/or learning disabilities with possible lifelong implications.

We will step inside its cause, meet someone who is living it, and conduct
an intimate exchange between the attendees about the critical issues of not only this disorder but the larger questions of how we as a society respond to such challenges.
I urge you to bring your spouse/partner as well as family members who are of child bearing age.
You will learn about this and the close behavioral cousins of FASD.

    Excellent, We learned a lot, well organized presentation with graphics and personal experience of adopted American Indian child, great Q & A. Tragic that alcohol is both so seductive and destructive.
