The 9th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD: Review, Respond and Relate â€“ Integrating Research, Policy and Practice Around the WorldThe Hyatt Regency Vancouver
655 Burrard St, Vancouver, BC V6C 2R7 Canada
|Although there have been thousands of published articles in FASD in general, there has been limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD or on individuals across the lifespan. As those individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the â€śneed to knowâ€ť across a broad spectrum of areas is becoming critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions. This interactive 2020 conference will provide an opportunity to be at the forefront of addressing these issues. We will welcome a diverse group of professionals, researchers, students, families and individuals with FASD.|
