This is an on-demand webinar that can be viewed online at your convenience after you register and purchase.

Overview: In forty years of research on FASD, a lot has been learned about the direct effect on a baby’s developing brain of alcohol in utero. There is a growing body of knowledge about the types of interventions and supports required across the life span and in a variety of settings to promote success. What is often overlooked is the effect of a child’s sensory sensitivities which can compound other more obvious challenges. While most of us can unconsciously screen out the slight smell of a cleaning product or the faint hum of a computer, many people with FASD cannot. This webinar will identifying examples of factors in the home environment that may trigger children and youth with FASD, identify the indicators of a sensory sensitivity reaction, and explore strategies to reduce the impact of that reaction on the child or youth.

Presenter: David Gerry, BSc Biology & Psychology, began his intensive “home study” applied learning in the field of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) as a direct result of becoming a foster parent to two children with FASD. In 2000, he co-founded a charity called The FASD Community Circle  to develop programs & services for those with FASD.
