Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Foster Parent Training is provincially mandated in Saskatchewan due to the high rates of children in care who live with FASD. Training is provided by the FASD Network.

Course Duration 3 hours
Course Delivery Instructor-Led, Video Conference
Course Type Instructor-Led, Video Conference

This three-hour training helps foster families to understand the disability and what strategies and supports they can put in place. Foster families gain valuable insights from the first-hand accounts of other foster parents on subjects such as birth parents, advocating, judgement, and grief and loss.  

The aim of our Foster Parent training is to explore how prenatal exposure impacts individuals across their lifespan and learn support techniques to help them be successful. Families who attend this training benefit from complementary booklets to bring home for additional information and the opportunity to connect with other foster parents in the community for ongoing support.
