Eva Akins, associate in the children and education team, is holding a workshop at the European conference on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders 2016, titled 'navigate the education system with a child with FAS, knowing your rights and what to do when things go wrong'.

This four day conference brings together academics, educators, non-governmental organisations and charities, legislators and politicians, lawyers and individuals involved in the criminal justice system, birth and adoptive families alongside individuals who themselves have FASD; shared learning will help promote the understanding of this disorder in the UK, Europe and internationally.

The conference will cover a wide range of topics including prevention, social determinants, diagnosis, epigenetics, psychological profiles, behavioural management, education, prevalence, family support, criminal justice system difficulties, social care needs, practical management and pharmacology.
