While often having many strengths, students with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) encounter unique challenges while at school and in the classroom. They have different learning needs, and might struggle to regulate their learning abilities or their emotions. In this workshop, participants will: understand the proactive supports that students with FASDs need, based upon how their brains process information (Cognitive Supports), learn how to re-interpret many common struggles and behaviors seen in students with FASDs, and learn how to avoid setting students up for more struggle and difficulty learning.
