Basic knowledge of FASD is something we're asked for all the time – by caregivers and whānau, professionals and educators. And even for the most knowledgeable of us, it's sometimes good to get a refresher.
What you will learn
• The context and cause of FASD
• What is FASD?
• What we can do to help people with FASD, their caregivers and whānau live good lives (it’s all about relationship; change the environment not the person).
This webinar is particularly designed for people who have limited knowledge about FASD but it is also useful for people wanting to review the basics. It will be of interest to caregivers/whānau who may be caring for an individual with FASD, as well as frontline professionals such as teachers, social or justice workers who interact with tamariki or rangatahi who may have FASD. We want our participants to be able to refer others in the future to the recorded video of this session if they feel they would benefit from learning some basic information about FASD.
