Webinar: Trying Differently Rather Than Harder

FASD is a brain-based condition with behavioural symptoms. This webinar will educate you on a best practices approach for increasing understanding of FASD (and other neurobehavioural conditions), reducing frustration, and expanding options. It is intended for professionals, parents, whānau members, and caregivers working with and living with individuals who have confirmed or possible brain-based differences, including FASD.

You'll gain a new understanding of why traditional behavioural treatment techniques are frequently ineffective for individuals with brain-based differences. 

The FASCETS Neurobehavioural Model looks at the link between brain and behaviour and creates a good fit between the person, their abilities, the environment and our expectations around them. It also addresses the stresses and strains this places on the professional teams and whānau around the individual. It can open up a whole new world of more positive interaction with your tamariki or rangatahi. 

Our Presenter – Anna Gundesen
