Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a brain-based physical disability with behavioral symptoms. The brain-based approach to living with, caring for, and working with individuals and families impacted by FASD acknowledges the source of behaviors: the brain, and provides a set of research-based best practices for helping people with fetal alcohol exposure.
This workshop is based on current research and writings around best practices when parenting, working with, or supporting persons with FASDs, and includes many personal anecdotes, stories, and examples of positive change.
Topics covered in the workshop:
- Facts, figures and statistics
- Neurobehavioral Profile: primary and secondary characteristics
- Accommodations and environmental change
PLEASE BRING YOUR LUNCH : this will allow you to talk to fellow participants during lunch.
