Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a brain difference that is often invisible and affects 1% of all children born. Children who have been born exposed to alcohol benefit greatly from early intervention and supports.
In this workshop we will cover:
• An introduction to FASD
• New diagnostic terms
• Strengths and Challenges commonly associated with individuals with FASD
• Strategies for supporting children and families
Kirsten is one of three provincial mentors with the Canadian FASD Mentorship Project funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
