Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is one of the most prevalent brain-based disabilities. As a result, there is a growing need for caregivers to acquire increased knowledge and practical skills to support children, adults, and families living with FASD. This workshop will review five pillars for success when supporting individuals with FASD. These include a focus on Strengths, Healthy Relationships, Promoting FASD Self Awareness, Adaptations Strategies, and Team-Based Support.

She has spent much of her time working directly with children, youth, and families.

She believes that even in the thick of trauma and/or crisis, people can use relationships and laughter to work through these critical moments. Heather values the lives and the stories of all the people whom she has the honor of meeting and walking with on their life path. She is an energetic and engaging facilitator who strives to find ways to build relationships and incorporate 'laughter' into the work she does families and communities.
