FASD Session Hobart

What is FASD [Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder] and how can early childhood educators include children with FASD into their programs?
The session will deliver useful information on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and the impact for individuals across the lifespan. The logic of this understanding translates to adjusting our expectations of those living with FASDs and developing appropriate strategies to support individuals in the home, school, service organisations, community and justice services.

Introduction and description of FASD Diagnosing FASD
