Event Overview
Welcome message:

It is imperative to a just society to acknowledge, address and support adolescents and adults with fetal
alcohol spectrum disorder within the context of ethical service provision. Now is the time for the exploration,
examination and deliberation of what we do, how we do it and how we might change.

The conference will bring together a diverse group of professionals, families and individuals with FASD to
discuss research, evidence, model practice and ideas to expand how we sustain and enhance the lives of
individuals with FASD. Participants will consider and debate how we continue to build on strengths and
modify existing programs, services and systems to address barriers to ethical practice in healthcare, housing, social services, mental health, criminal and civil justice, employment and education. Participants will explore ideas for the creation and provision of integrated and collaborative approaches across systems with an emphasis on inclusion, creating a good life, social justice and practicality.
