For Professionals and Educators

Not every child diagnosed under FASD will respond the same way to a strategy. What works today may not work tomorrow. Keep trying different strategies until you find what works for the student. It is important to keep in mind their developmental age as well as the fact that they have a brain-based invisible physical disability. It is important to structure their environment and be “one step ahead” of them to anticipate difficulties.
