Free FASD Presentation

The NWFASD Network invites you to attend a special presentation given by our Diagnostic Clinic Coordinator, Vanessa Norris.

This oral presentation will give the audience a brief snapshot of a working collaboration between the Northwest FASD Network and the Aseniwuche Winewak Nation, focusing on how the collaboration provides a rough model to the TRC’s call for FASD ‘programs that can be delivered in a culturally appropriate manner’.

The Northwest Alberta FASD Network implements and evaluates FASD programming based on three focused goals: coordinated assessments and diagnosis, targeted prevention, and support services for people with FASD as well as their caregivers.

The presentation aims to promote discussion around addressing FASD in relevant and culturally appropriate manners throughout Canada.
