NOFAS Northern California is working alongside all of the FASD groups in California and positioning to present a document to the CA Legislature, which details the need for training, diagnosis, and services. It requests a legislative task force be mandated. Timing for this request fits nicely with S.2879 - the Advancing FASD Research, Prevention, and Services Act.
We need signatures supporting the creation of a task force from professionals such as doctors, mental health providers, social workers, criminal justice professionals, and educators. The legislature must recognize that FASD is a critical issue to California and that there is support for such a task force.
Work with people with FASD in any of these fields?
