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. Participants will transfer newfound knowledge about FASD into practical and meaningful ways to try differently, not harder in their support of individuals, families, and communities affected by FASD.
