Parents and Caregivers
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 your child. 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.
The following tip sheets can be used at home, school and in the community. Providing the tip sheets to teachers, school custodians, coaches, crossing guards and all those involved in your child’s life will help increase understanding of this brain based invisible disability.
FASD Support Network of Saskatchewan Inc. provides additional tipsheets that may be helpful. Click here for more information
