This conference will provide a forum to share research, experience and practice in order to discuss how we can effectively
sustain and enhance the lives of adolescents and adults with FASD, their families, service providers, and communities. Are we
adequately addressing and supporting the needs and rights of adolescents and adults with FASD within our society? Do
individuals with FASD have timely and appropriate access to health care, housing, social services, legal and civil justice and
employment? How can we build on the strengths of existing systems to identify and address barriers and move forward to
provide effective ethical support? How do we provide focused and targeted approaches across services, and systems to create
an integrated and collaborative approach to supporting individuals with FASD? These are the essential elements for social
justice and we are just starting to explore and understand what will be required to put these into action.
