Workshops

NOFASD Australia delivers education and training to a wide range of audiences across Australia. The content and format of workshops is tailored according to the level of knowledge in the group and identified interests.

 Join the FASD hub for upcoming webinar:

Managing alcohol use in pregnancy

Many clinicians tell us they don’t ask about alcohol during pregnancy, as they don’t know how to ask, what to advise or where to refer. In this free session, we’ll present a case study of a woman who is drinking alcohol during pregnancy, and hear the perspectives of a panel of health professionals and a biological mother.

Join this webinar to learn more about how you can ask, advise and support women who are planning a pregnancy or pregnant. We encourage health professionals, researchers, and anyone who works with pregnant women to attend. And if you can’t make it to the live webinar, feel free to register anyway and a recording will be sent to you after the event.

Online workshops

While face to face workshops are not recommended during the coronavirus pandemic, NOFASD Australia are able to deliver our FASD information workshop and other tailored training online using videoconferencing technology. Please contact us for more information on 1800 860 613 or admin@nofasd.org.au

Available training

Train it Forward Masterclass

NOFASD’s Train it Forward Masterclass provides participants with the knowledge and confidence to share information, resources and ideas with their colleagues and communities. Upon completing this workshop participants have an understanding of FASD and its complexity as well as strategies for responding to and supporting clients with FASD. This gives individuals the opportunity to deliver FASD training across an organisation and also to become a point of contact for anyone with questions about FASD. Train it Forward sessions are delivered in a one-day workshop, which can be booked in any city or town across Australia.

FASD Information Workshop

NOFASD’s 2 or 3 hour Information Workshop provides an overview of FASD and its challenges. The workshop is tailored for each audience, with content usually covering the following:
• Description of FASD
• Effects of FASD on the individual
• The diagnostic process
• Challenges for families living with FASD
• Responding to individuals living with FASD
• Strategies for support and learning

Sensory Strategies for FASD

NOFASD’s Sensory Strategies for FASD is a practical workshop which teaches skills for assisting children with FASD to use sensory strategies to self-regulate. Individuals with FASD often experience sensory processing difficulties which can interfere with communication and learning, and can result in difficult behaviours. This program focuses on improving a child’s executive functioning and ability to self-regulate using sensory strategies. It is suitable for parents, carers, educators, and clinicians.

Strategies-focused Introduction to FASD

NOFASD’s Strategies-focused Introduction to FASD is a full day workshop which combines the information workshop with a strong focus on practical strategies for supporting children in their homes and schools. Valuable for professionals and family members, this workshop can fit within a school day to make it accessible to parents and carers.
