Our Training


This training approaches Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and other neuro-developmental conditions from a brain-based approach. This goal is to establish a common language for parents and caregivers, professionals and community partners so that there is a shared understanding of the individual from a brain-based perspective. This 12-hour training format was developed to help establish and sustain strengths-based informed networks of care. By creating "collective wisdom" we will:

  1. Support placements.
  2. Strengthen intervention programs - including school.
  3. Provide a philosophy of intervention that is prevention based.

Our job is to explain individuals with FASD to the world

and not the world to individuals with FASD
