HaTikva Families Sponsors First Professional Seminar on FASD

On Sunday, January 6, HaTikva Families had the honor of coordinating Israel’s first professional seminar on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in partnership with Laura Seton and Sharona Duchne of Adoption Wisdom. Not only did expert, Dr. Ira Chasnoff explain how alcohol consumption during pregnancy affects fetal development, cognitive functioning, and behavior, but he also taught us how to help children with FASD as professionals and foster and adoptive parents. How empowering to learn that we can overcome the behavioral and developmental challenges associated with FASD!
