Setting Strong Foundations: Early intervention to help children with FASD
May 23, 2023 - May 23, 2023
Early childhood is an important time for all children, providing the foundation for future wellbeing, learning and behaviour. For children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (PAE), early assessment, diagnosis and interventions have the potential to make a critical difference in later life. By identifying FASD as early as possible, and applying appropriate strategies that work with the child’s unique limitations and strengths, we can give these children the best chance to grow and thrive. Even small interventions in these crucial years may lead to big impacts down the road.
In this webinar, we will learn more about executive function and other common challenges in early childhood, the importance of quality caregiving, strategies for self-regulation in young children, as well as resources that are currently available to support families.
Our speakers include experts in paediatrics, psychology, and early childhood development, and a caregiver with lived experience of raising a child with FASD.
