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.
