FASD Support

Although Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) cannot be cured there are some things that can be done to reduce the severity of problems associated with it.
Behaviour Therapy's
 
Social Skills Development
Often children with FASD struggle with socialising with their peers. Play and general social rules do not always develop as they are expected to.
Social Skills Development teachers children how to interact with their peers. How to behave in group situations, and how to understand sutble rules within public situations such as school, play group, sports etc.
Special one on one tuturing or aide support
Often children with FASD will be identified as having a learning disability. One on one support can help these children absorb the information they require to function at school. Many of these children require combination visual and hands on learning to take in and retain information that their peers appear to take on easily within a normal classroom environment. To obtain such support a child will require a cognitive assessment via a clinical psychologist/ educational psychologist. If a learning disability is identified then the child may qualify for funding assisstance to have an intergration aide allocated for a number of school hours per week.
Executive Function Training
This type of training is specific therapy to help to develop insight, judgement and and understanding about consiquential behaviour. For a child with FASD this is very important as there is often frontal lobe limitations that reduce insight, judgement and increase risk taking behaviour throughout the full lifespan.
Executive Function Training focuses on teaching problem solving skills, memory, reasoning, assertiveness, insight and cause and effect.  
Family Therapy and Parenting Development
Focus is in building parenting insight and parenting skills to improve parent/child relationships as well as coping techniques around behaviour managment. This can include parent therapy, family therapy, psycho-education and parenting programs.
