Local Time: Wed, 17 Apr, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Speaker: Kathleen Tavenner Mitchell, MHS, LCADC Vice President and Spokesperson, National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

The National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (NOFAS) is a charity non-profit organization in their twenty-fourth year of operations. NOFAS is the leading voice on issues of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and is committed to both prevention of FASD and creating a society that supports individuals living with the disorders. The presenter, Kathleen Mitchell, has been with NOFAS since the inception of the organization, and is a parent of an adult daughter with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). She will provide an overview about FASD through the lifespan. She will address both FASD prevention and treatment. Ms. Mitchell will review NOFAS prevention campaigns, including the clearinghouse, school and youth FASD prevention programs and birth mother initiatives. She will describe four interventions for individuals with FASD currently being researched (with CDC support). She will review resources and support for individuals and their families and investigate ways in which Arc Chapters, the NOFAS Affiliate Network, the Friends of NOFAS and FASD family support groups can network and partner to create local systems of care for individuals with FASD.
