Course description

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) is a permanent, lifelong disability caused by exposure to alcohol during pregnancy. The affected child often presents with a bewildering complexity of symptoms and behaviours many of which will only present at school age, when the alcohol in pregnancy has been forgotten or is considered irrelevant.

This workshop will raise awareness of the effects of parenatal exposure to alcohol and how we can best manage presenting behaviours for the best outcomes for the child. You will learn what FAS is and how to work with children and families effected by FAS.

Training objectives

Improve the support and outcomes of children with FAS.
To highlight positive strategies for parents/ carers and educators of children affected.

• Adapt strategies and links to services to support families with alcohol affected children.
