Thank you NOFAS for this Webinar
Though not everyone with an FASD gets in trouble with the law, research shows that these incidents occur far too frequently. This webinar will discuss research on how commonly troubles with the law occurs for people with FASD, and how many of the cognitive difficulties that occur in FASD can lead to problems when interacting with police, attorneys, and judges. Becoming involved with the justice system can be an overwhelming experience both for the person who has been arrested and the family. Steps that the family can take to help navigate this system and minimize the chances of falling through the cracks in the system will also be discussed.
