Battle against booze disorder
Course: Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder training
The name "Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder" may sound self-explanatory, but when it comes to diagnosis, it's anything but.
"There are many people working in services such as drug and alcohol, mental health, schools and other educational areas, who are delivering their services to people who have FASD but are undiagnosed," says case management specialist from Training Connections Australia, Anne Russell.
There's also a shortage of workers who understand the condition well.
"Inappropriate services, programs, and expectations can exacerbate the condition and/or create secondary disabilities," Russell says.
It's a complicated issue, but the good news is, training can help.
This training program is tailored to suit specific groups of learners - including drug and alcohol workers, parents, carers and teachers.
Duration: Typically one day, however, can be extended to two days to suit the group.
Time: Timing to suit the group.
When: On demand for groups.
