It is estimated that up to 17% of children in the UK may have symptoms consistent with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
Children with FASD often have difficulty in school and may require extra support.
They may require special education, behavioural therapies, and other interventions to help them reach their full potential.
Here's What You'll Learn
Delve into the complexities of FASD, exploring its definition, prevalence, and impact on individuals. Acquire in-depth knowledge about the range of neurodevelopmental challenges that can occur as a result of prenatal alcohol exposure.
Investigate the causes and risk factors associated with FASD. Understand the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on foetal development and the long-term consequences it may have on a child's physical, cognitive, and social-emotional well-being.
Characteristics of FASD
Familiarise yourself with the key characteristics and behaviours commonly observed in children with FASD. Understand how the underlying neurodevelopmental impairments contribute to challenges such as executive functioning difficulties, impulse control issues, and social communication deficits. Gain insights into the behavioural manifestations of FASD and develop strategies to respond effectively and compassionately.
Sensory Processing Difficulties
Explore the sensory processing difficulties often experienced by children with FASD. Understand how sensory processing challenges can impact their ability to regulate emotions, engage in social interactions, and participate in learning activities. Discover strategies to create sensory-friendly environments and develop individualised accommodations that promote a supportive and inclusive learning experience.
Discover the power of visual signposts and supports in facilitating understanding, organisation, and communication for children with FASD.

"There was so much in the course that will be useful, both to myself and colleagues. As a school, our focus currently is Oracy, and the opening of the presentation helped me to focus on exactly where I need to focus activities and support. But the practical advice later, will be so useful for colleagues who are developing children's ability to communicate, regardless of ability.
The presenter, Sara, was very engaging, and clearly passionate about children and learning. having sat through so many zoom courses, and feeling a passenger, Sara really brought the subject to life and I felt fully engaged."
