  • 29th April 2024 8:15 - 9:15pm; Clinical Psychiatrist Dr Cassie Jackson & FASD Hub South West Event focussing on 'Supporting strategies for FASD'                                                                         After the hugely successful ‘Ask the FASD Experts’ March Event, we are back with the theme of 'supporting the challenges' in offering you a chance to ask questions for ‘FASD & Supporting Strategies’.                                                                                           We have invited back Clinical Psychologist Dr Cassie Jackson & our own Director of FASD to chat more to us about what they see in supporting many families with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.                                                                                                              This is a unique opportunity to dig deep into what works and what doesn’t where questions are asked that really matter in supporting the day to day challenges of living with and supporting FASD.                                                                                                                        Ticket holders are encouraged to email in ahead of the evening to ask confidential questions that will be asked on your behalf, where a wide range of topics will be discussed openly.                              You won’t be disappointed as not only do we have a full evening planned in great company, but we take detailed notes and follow up with providing linked resources to every topic covered. We also offer a support HUB to gain extra support, resources and friendship.                                                                                  Examples of questions asked:

  • Children, young people and adults affected by FASD do learn, but they all learn differently. FASD is a permanent brain damage. How do we support the complexity of needs?

  • Every child affected with FASD is different and has his or her own unique strengths and challenges. Therefore, not all strategies will work with your child, how do we think outside the box? Why does one thing work on one day and not on another!

  • It's okay to talk about disability how do we start the conversation?

  • Alcohol exposure in utero can affect every system in the body, so it is important to keep a watchful eye, what should we look for?

  • While all children with FASD have their own unique challenges and strengths in terms of behaviour and health related issues, there are a few key strategies that we hope to dip into during this session and discuss more of your challenges. Book HERE
