LINKING BRAIN FUNCTIONING AND BEHAVIOUR: Learning to Work Differently, Not Harder- with Diane Malbin

A neuro-behavioural, or brain-based, approach to addressing FASD will be introduced. This approach provides a practical structure for intervening in challenging behaviours and creating the conditions for their prevention. Over 1.5 days, we will move beyond describing behavioural symptoms to understanding the link between brain (dys)function and behavioural symptoms. This lens helps explain how many good techniques are a poor fit with the cognitive abilities of those affected by FASD. Case examples will, along with lecture, discussion and application of exercises be used to illustrate how, over time and across developmental stages, this approach has proven effective at home, in school and in the community.
