The Government of Alberta, including the Ministry of Community and Social Services and Ministry of Education, have collaborated to develop a new approach and service delivery model for building capacity within the education system and across all Alberta school authorities, including First Nation communities and Métis Settlements. The new model is intended to enhance partnerships between school authorities and FASD Service Networks across Alberta in a collaborative approach. FASD Instructional Coaches will support education staff to enhance their knowledge and skills regarding how to support students by providing professional development on FASD best practices and hands-on support incorporating FASD-informed approaches into their classroom communities.
The NW Peace FASD Network is excited to be a part of this new approach! To learn more about the project or setup a presentation in the Northwest Peace region please reach out to Jen Duperron-Trydal at Jen@nwfasd.ca
