Community Education & Training

Community Education

Members of the the Asante Centre team, including clinicians, program staff, and individuals with FASD, develop and host workshops, present at conferences and participate in a variety of community educational activities.

The Centre offers fee-for-service training for agencies or communities seeking greater understanding of developmental stressors and related concerns.

Topics and format are tailored to the specific audience and their needs, and may include prevention of prenatal alcohol use, introduction to developmental stressors, assessment and diagnosis, strategies for support, the impact of stressors in legal settings, classroom accommodations, strategies and self-care for caregivers, communication disabilities, mental health concerns, substance use, and more. 

The training was absolutely fabulous – Allison was entertaining and able to give clear relatable examples that helped our staff understand the differences between FASD and behaviour choices.  She also provided resources that we were able to share with staff who were not able to attend.
