For the majority of individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) average to above average intelligence and verbal skills will mask their disabilities. Their behaviors get labeled as oppositional, lazy, and defiant. This workshop will provide basic information on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and give you some practical strategies for the classroom.
Double ARC was founded by educators who collaborated with health care and social service providers to find answers to problems parents and teachers identified in children.
Double ARC has collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others to develop a curriculum for teachers. Through knowledge, coping skills and problem-solving practice, participants will be able to discover which are most beneficial in working with their child’s current issues.
