The focus of the presentation will be on prenatal alcohol and drug exposure on the growing child and its implications for behavioral and mental health treatment. Dr. Chasnoff will discuss assessment tools, treatment planning, and interventions to promote learning and positive outcomes in children affected by prenatal exposure to alcohol or illicit drugs. The presentation will conclude with a discussion on the ethics of prevention and early intervention and an approach to developing a comprehensive system of care grounded in screening, assessment, and treatment.
