FREE Training for Primary Schools on Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder

The Virtual School for LAC (Looked After Children) is giving primary schools the opportunity to attend a training course on FASD (Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder) presented by Rhian Beynon, Team Manager of the Adoption Support Team.

FREE FASD training for Primary Schools

7 December 2016 in City Hall (Saville Room), from 9.00am until 12.00 noon

FASD - The Challenge:

  • No two children with FASD are alike either physically or behaviourally
  • Often the condition goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed
  • It is caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol at any time in pregnancy and this can be as little as one drink during pregnancy.

This is why it is so important to understand what FASD is and how we can best support the children who display these behavioural, social and learning characteristics.

This training is a unique opportunity for all support and teaching staff to learn about foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

The training will outline:

  •  What is FASD?
  • How is it diagnosed and what are the features of FASD?
  • How does it impact on the development of the child?
  • What you need to know if you have a child that you suspect or has a diagnosis of FASD?
  • Strategies to use in the classroom.

 This training will be delivered by Rhian Beynon, Team Manager of the Adoption Support Team.
