Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This qualitative study explored the converging and diverging needs of biological and adoptive parents raising young children with or at risk for fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. Findings from this study advocate for early interventions that prioritize and promote social-emotional development of young children, are family-centered, and provide concrete assistance for family circumstances and parent well-being.
