CanFASD Free Online Training: Foundation In FASD

Foundations in FASD is a basic training course intended for everyone that will come into contact with individuals with FASD including all sectors of work, families, individuals with FASD, spouses, and the general public. This foundational level training program provides the perspective of individuals who have FASD, is evidence-based, employs a culturally sensitive approach, and is presented in a way that is responsive to the learner's needs.


CanFASD Towards Improved Practice (cost $62.50)

Towards Improved Practice (TIP) is a training program that provides front-line service providers in many fields including mental health, addictions, corrections, shelters, literacy and adult education programs, with knowledge and tools to identify and best support women who are at-risk for having a child with FASD or individuals at-risk for having FASD themselves. These settings provide ideal opportunities to implement brief, effective approaches to prevent FASD as well as to improve outcomes for those already affected by FASD. CanFASD experts have developed a training workshop for front-line workers to improve understanding of the implications of prenatal alcohol exposure and to how to implement screening and a referral pathway for diagnosis and/or interventions.
