Introduction to Supporting Children and Young People with FASD

We have co-created this one-day training course with Seashell as part of a project funded by the Department of Health. These are delivered via zoom until we can safely conduct them in person again.

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

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.
