On the 16th of October, the WA Inclusion Agency attended training provided by the National Organisation for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (NOFASD).
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) consists of lifelong physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that result from fetal alcohol exposure. The majority of children and adults who have FASD live with significant cognitive, behavioural, health and learning difficulties, including problems with memory, attention, cause and effect reasoning, impulsivity, receptive language and adaptive functioning difficulties. These difficulties are lifelong and have a significant impact on behaviour.
It is essential for our Inclusion Professionals to be equipped with the knowledge to be able to effectively support Early Childhood and Child Care services seeking support for children displaying FASD-related difficulties.
Our Inclusion Professionals cameaway from the training with a better understanding about FASD and how to develop strategies and support according to each client's presenting behaviours and strengths.
