Fusion Meetings and Events
Presenters: Dr Valerie McGinn & Sarah Goldsbury
FASD needs to be treated differently to other disabilities. We know that with FASD-informed practice and the appropriate disability supports, individuals with FASD can become emotionally settled and make good progress. However, without these supports provided lifelong, they struggle to reach their potential.
This workshop will inform participants about FASD, including what to look for and how to work differently with those who may be affected. It will include updates in recent research and practice, and will be valuable to those working with children, young people and adults across a range of areas including education, child development, mental health, care and protection and justice.
