More than 1 in 10 babies born each year in the United States have been prenatally exposed to alcohol or illicit drugs. Prenatal exposure to harmful susbtances, including alcohol, illegal drugs, and tobacco, has the potential to cause signficiant, long-lasting harm to the developing brain. The effects of prenatal substance exposure can last a lifetime, resulting in negative consequences to health, learning, social-emotional skills, and the ability to form relationships.
Join Mary Allison and special guest, Kim Stevens, on Friday, September 15 from 9:00-4:00 in Port Orchard to learn more about what to expect when you’re caring for a child who has been prenatally exposed. We are so excited to bring this learning opportunity to our local families.
