Webinar #4: Parenting the Adolescent with FASD
This session will offer first-hand experience of parenting an adolescent with FASD. The webinar, facilitated by Dr. Ira Chasnoff, will feature Carole Hurley, a single adoptive mother of two who is raising both an adolescent and a younger child with FASD. Information will include how she handles day-to-day struggles and where she goes to find assistance. This is an excellent opportunity to ask direct questions about raising children with FASD and to learn from her experience.
In 2013, Carole became the Chief Administrative Law Judge for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. She is Chair of the State Bar Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect, Chair of the Travis County Child Protective Services Board, and is a member of the Texas Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Prevention Task Force. Her most important job, though, is being Kara and Emma Hurley's mom.

About the NTI Upstream 2014 Webinar Series
The 2014 NTI Upstream webinar series, Adolescents with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, will explore various facets of physical and emotional development of adolescents with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). The series will include in-depth explanation of how FASD adolescents' basic neurobehavioral deficits - neurocognitive, self-regulation, and adaptive behaviors - are demonstrated in behavior. The development of youth with FASD will be compared to the expression of "normal" adolescent development (social, search for independence, consequences of behavior, executive function, etc.).
