Looking for answers about how tounderstand how sensory needs are affecting your child?
Children who have FASD and other invisible disorders often have unique sensory needs. Often caregivers and support providers are mystified by these needs, the resulting behaviours and struggle to find effective interventions. This seminar will empower participants to create an intentional and
supportive environment for these precious children and youth who have challenges because of unique sensory needs. In this workshop on Sensory Integration, participants will learn specific skills and strategies for supporting children through sensory integration. Based in a deep understanding of attachment, sensory integration and developmental disorders, Sensory Integration provides caregivers and service providers with powerful insights for understanding the sensory needs of children and for appropriately guiding support and healthy behavior.
These principles are effective in bringing about healing for children in varied environments, such as homes, schools, day care settings, and residential treatment facilities. Participants will find powerful insights for creating a healing environment for children of any age and any level of risk.

When & Where
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.
