New CanFASD Online Training: Identifying Best Practices for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

Identifying Best Practices for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is designed for use by professionals working in the substance use, mental health, housing, employment, justice, and other service delivery fields. These settings provide ideal opportunities to implement brief, effective approaches to improve outcomes in preventing FASD, screening for FASD, and supporting success among individuals with FASD.

The aim of Identifying Best Practices is to provide a course for a range of service providers that is multidisciplinary, works across the spectrum of FASD, and supports individuals across the lifespan. The course will provide tools and strategies to support individuals who have or are at risk of having a child with FASD and/or may have FASD themselves.

The course includes four modules designed to provide you with:

  • An overview of FASD and its various manifestations and implications
  • Information about current approaches and strategies for FASD prevention
  • Resources on how to screen for FASD
  • Strategies to support individuals with FASD to achieve healthy outcomes

In the case study, you will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained from this course in a common scenario involving a fictional character with FASD in a variety of questions.

A certificate will be provided to each participant upon completion.
