Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is a brain injury caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. It is one of the most prevalent neurodevelopmental disorders, and there is a growing need for caregivers to gain new knowledge and practical skills for supporting children, adults, and families living with FASD.

This workshop outlines six pathways for success when supporting individuals living with FASD. These include a focus on Promoting Strengths, FASD Self-Awareness and Acceptance, Sensory Regulation, Adaptation Strategies, Healthy Relationships, and Team-Based Support. Participants will transfer newfound knowledge about FASD into practical and meaningful ways to try differently, not harder, in how they provide support.
