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.
The workshops and trainings are based on current research and writings around best practices when parenting, working with, or supporting persons with FASDs, and include many personal anecdotes, stories, and examples of positive change.
Each webinar session will be recorded and a link to the recording and a copy of the slides and all handouts are sent out to participants after each session.
