Introduction to Supporting Children and Young People with FASD

We have co-created this one-day training course with the Seashell Trust as part of a project funded by the Department of Health. In autumn 2020 this will be provided via Zoom and we hope this can be delivered in person in 2021.

The course is for professionals across Health, Education and Social Care who want to improve their awareness of FASD.

It is based on “Best Practice in FASD Training Guide” and the “FASD: UK Preferred Language Guide” – both also produced under the Seashell Trust/National FASD partnership project.

Course content includes:

  • Causes of FASD; its prevalence and terminology
  • Identification of signs and symptoms across the lifespan that a person with FASD may display
  • How to get a diagnosis
  • Strategies for supporting a person with FASD, including voices from the FASD community

Dates:

  • 22 October 2020
  • 12 November 2020
  • 18 November 2020
  • 2 December 2020

Time:

9:30am – 3:30pm

Bespoke events

National FASD also provides bespoke sessions for public and private organisations. We also regularly provide speakers for conferences, trainings and other events. Due to the great number of requests we receive, we must prioritise those events designed for maximum impact and which focus on promoting awareness and a more positive approach to FASD among diverse audiences. These are curtailed at the moment due to COVID.

In addition, for smaller-scale trainings, we can put you in touch with a range of individuals and organisations that provide more localised and regional FASD training.
