Join us for this three-part online workshop for parents of children affected by FASD or other neurobehavioural conditions to gain a greater understanding as well as the application of a brain-based approach.

The workshop will be hosted by Nathalie Brassard, FASD Consultant with FASCETS (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Consultation Education and Training Services) 

Fetal Alcohol / Neurobehavioural conditions (FA/NB) encompass the spectrum of brain-based conditions with a wide range of symptoms. This session establishes a research-informed conceptual foundation linking brain function with behaviours and introduces an evidence-based emerging best practices approach to developing appropriate and effective person-specific strategies in all settings.

This workshop was designed for parents and professionals; content is relevant for the range of disciplines. It provides a common language for participants to enhance ongoing collaboration and networking among those working with people with FASD in all systems. 

To engage participants in continuing to understand FA/NB as a brain-based neurobehavioral condition, by outlining how reframing understanding of people from a neurobehavioral perspective contributes to the development of person-specific accommodations in all settings.

This workshop is free through a generous grant from the Victoria Foundation, and is designed for current and prospective adoptive, permanency, foster, and kinship parents
