What is the Fetal Alcohol Resource Program?
Throughout Ontario, there is no strong, comprehensive system of inter-related, complimentary services and supports for individuals and their families affected by FASD. The Fetal Alcohol Resource Program aims to change this through education, community leadership development and community navigation.
About Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
Many Canadians are living with FASD. Although FASD is present from birth, individuals are often not diagnosed until later in life when symptoms related to learning challenges and a range of social problems emerge.
We are offering a two-hour training session to build awareness for professionals, families and friends supporting people with FASD.
You will have the opportunity to learn the basics about what FASD is, how to recognize it, the prevalence in our society and some of the challenges individuals face when they are prenatally exposed to alcohol. We will also share strategies to create success and have a Q & A session.
