About this course

An engaging online workshop designed to help teaching professionals recognise and respond to the challenges faced by children affected by Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).

FASDs are a group of conditions that can be caused by a mother consuming alcohol during pregnancy. Children affected by FASD can present a range of symptoms which may make learning difficult. Typically, these can include issues with memory, attention span, communication, vision, problems interacting with others and hearing loss. Any or all of these could be significant barriers to learning in school.
