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.

FAFASD is pleased to offer a variety of workshops and trainings focusing on FASD as a neurobehavioral disorder. These trainings explain FASD and help caregivers and professionals working with individuals and families affected by FASD create a plan for success.

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.

We have several workshop formats: 3 hour, 1 day, 2 days, and 3 days. We can also craft something custom for your event. 

Want to know how parents can host a workshop? Check out our post: “How parents can host an “FASD and the Brain-Based Approach” training” to see how other family groups have helped bring FASD information to their communities.
