Join us for this free, forty-five minute webcast titled: FASD and Justice – A Moderated Discussion.
This moderated interview will seek to answer questions and give expert guidance about navigating the justice system.
We will explore the special needs of a person with FASD who is navigating the system, and the creative ways our panelists have overcome them or believe they can be surmounted.
We will also discuss the benefit of getting assessments done while individuals are incarcerated and how the justice system can open up to FASD workers to set up supports in the community before the release of the individual.
