Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a brain-based physical disability with behavioral symptoms. The brain-based approach to living with, caring for, and working with individuals and families impacted by FASD acknowledges the source of behaviors: the brain, and provides a set of research-based emerging best practices for helping people with fetal alcohol exposure.
The 7-hour workshop includes current information on FASD and other neurobehavioral disorders, and a conceptual model for providing a brain-based approach when working with and caring for people with FASD. The goal is to shift from describing and reacting to behaviors to understanding them and structuring the individual’s environment for success.
This workshop is based on the workshops presented by Diane Malbinthrough FASCETS, an internationally known training model about FASD/NB disorders and the brain-based approach
