The FASD Network of Saskatchewan hosts monthly three-hour training sessions at our office in Saskatoon to provide frontline workers with an in-depth knowledge of FASD.
Frontline Part 1 - “The Basics” from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
During this 3 hour training you will learn about primary disabilities and how they relate to an individual’s behaviours and actions as well as how they may cause secondary disabilities. This session also incorporates interactive components which allow frontline workers to experience what it feels like to live with FASD.
Frontline Part 2 - “Strategies” from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
The second 3-hour training session focuses on real life tips and strategies. Attendance at a Frontline Part 1 session is a prerequisite for this training to ensure an appropriate level of knowledge regarding FASD. During this training workers will benefit from practical strategies and a toolkit that they can utilize when supporting an individual with FASD. When possible, Frontline part 2 will be co-presented with an individual living with the disability who offers insight into what life is really like with FASD.
