New resource for those engaging FASD training
The National Organisation for FASD and Seashell are pleased to announce the launch the new “Best Practice in FASD Training Guide” produced as part of their partnership project, “Resources and Training to Support Children and Young People with FASD,” funded by the Department of Health.
The guide includes:
- A checklist for FASD training;
- An overview of best practice in FASD training;
- Essential content for an introduction to FASD training course; and
- A fact and fiction section, debunking myths about FASD.
It was created with input from an experts committee that is guiding the Seashell and National FASD project as well as with input from other experts who participated in a special workshop exploring the issues.
The guide is not meant as a template for training. It is meant to highlight best practice for consideration when engaging or creating training in the field.
