There is strong evidence that although support work such as counselling, creative therapies and respite care can play a positive role in both prevention and support of FASD, most support workers in Aotearoa/New Zealand feel under-informed on how to effectively work with those impacted by it – see Auckland University research from their 2022 survey in the tab below.


* FASD Learning and Networking group for Social Workers and Support workers (LANSAS)

FASD-CAN launched an online FASD learning and networking group in 2023, which meets monthly around the second Tuesday of each month at lunchtimes (12.30-1.30pm). It's facilitated by FASD-experienced social workers and is an opportunity to learn more about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and connect with peers. You can join at any time.
