Event Details

The Centre for Child Development is proud to host a day-long workshop by Dr. Jacqueline Pei. This workshop is for professionals who support children and youth affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder including school counselors, mental health professionals, teachers, social workers, and key workers.

This goal of the training is to provide professionals with practical information which can be used to support they children and youth with whom they work.

Topics include:

  • Understanding FASD. We will overview the 2015 Canadian Diagnostic Guidelines, and discuss information available in assessment reports and reasonable expectations for translating that information to practice.
  • Becoming “brain detectives.” We will consider the ways in which we can begin to make sense of observed behaviour, in order to access our existing capacities to support success for all children and youth.
  • Building on the research. We will explore ways in which we can evolve our practices using research information gained about intervention practices with children or youth with FASD. We will consider what it means to develop and implement best-practices intervention to help them reach their potential and experience success in their lives.
