Event Details

This workshop is designed to assist parents, teachers, caregivers, one-to-one workers and other professionals learning to support children with behavioural symptoms and learning challenges. The sensory processing approach assists in “looking beyond the behaviour” and into the nervous system. It helps with understanding the child’s behaviour as a manner of coping.

Strategies in adapting the environment, altering interaction and providing appropriate supports for children who have difficulty with processing sensory information will be provided. Many children with different diagnoses experience challenges in the manner in which they process sensory information (for example, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, developmental coordination disorder, ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and emotional behavioural disorders).

This workshop is designed to assist in problem solving behaviours and learning based on observations that look beyond the label.

FASD Collaboration Roundtable

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a term used to describe the range of effects caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Typical effects of alcohol exposure in utero may include physical, mental, social-emotional and behavioural concerns, with lifelong implications for the individual. Because of variable patterns of disabilities and strengths, as well as their particular life circumstances, each person with FASD has highly unique needs. No single program can respond to the full range of issues, and a fragmented overall response system is inevitably ineffective.

The FASD Collaboration Roundtable – as the name suggests – is a way of bringing together people from across systems to network, share information, discuss issues and problem-solve effective responses, then try to entrench that in policy and practice. The goal is to involve all of the key systems and agencies that deliver services to children, youth and adults with FASD in the greater community. In addition, the Roundtable welcomes the voices of parents, grandparents, other caregivers of individuals with FASD, as well as other advocates, for the experience-based perspectives these stakeholders bring to the discussion.
