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.
This course will provide an essential introduction to the Mosaic system, covering the essential skills you will need to navigate the system and maintain client records.
This session will be held online using Microsoft Teams - a link to the online meeting will be attached to the booking confirmation email.
