FASD Information Workshop
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic ASCS will be delivering Programming/Workshops virtually when possible right now.
Education is necessary to prepare you for your current or future life chapters.
Whether you’re exploring aspects of adoption or parenting already, education is important. Not only is education vital with regard to learning about the process of adoption, but more importantly, learning about the needs of adopted children.
We are excited to host an evening with the FASD Network’s Shana Mohr to learn more about FASD and parenting. There is no cost for the workshop! Shana is an adoptive parent who is extremely knowledgeable in the area of FASD and you will be sure to gain a wealth of knowledge by attending.
This session will be accessible remotely through Zoom – It is open to everyone.
Please share with anyone you think may be interested.
Registration is Required in advance. You MUST register by April 8th a 1pm. Registrations after 1pm on the day of the session cannot be accepted.
