Act Early Network Quarterly Webinar: State Systems Grantees Share Their Success Stories

Location: Webinar
Please join us on Thursday, February 22 from 2-3p ET for our Act Early Network Quarterly Webinar: State Systems Grantees Share Their Success Stories! Act Early State Systems Grantees from Guam, California, Georgia, and Montana will all join us on the line to share with us how they are using their funding to strengthen systems of early identification and improve the coordination of early intervention services for children at the state and local level. Grantees are actively engaged in public awareness, education and training, collaboration, and advocacy efforts that will be of interest to a broad audience. The Act Early Program is a collaborative initiative of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) to further advance the CDC's "Learn the Signs. Act Early." Program.

Preventing, Identifying, & Treating Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Webinar Series

Location: Webinar
Recent surveillance studies funded by the NIAAA found the prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) to be as high as one in twenty students in schools in four states. Less than one percent of the actual cases were diagnosed. Persons with FASD are over represented in child welfare and criminal justice systems, making the condition one of the largest public health issues as well as the greatest cause of preventable intellectual disabilities. The AUCD network is positioned to provide leadership in preventing and intervening with FASD. This webinar will provide knowledge about FASD and tools to become involved, including connections with others in the network who are providing leadership and with national resources.
