About This Course

The Summer 2023 ProofCON Pro session explored the many intersections of FASD and child welfare.

Children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) are highly overrepresented in the child welfare system, including foster care and out-of-home placement. On average, a child with FASD is 17 to 19 times more likely to be in the child welfare system than someone without an FASD.

During this session, presenters will address the intersection of child welfare and FASD, including how the child welfare system currently cares for children with FASD, how to improve child welfare practice for FASD and how FASD intersects with the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).
