Building Awareness and Understanding About FASD
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a disability that requires unique supports and interventions. The Hamilton Community recognized the need for education, outreach and training for caregivers and service providers who support individuals with confirmed or suspected FASD.
The Hamilton FASD Collaborative was formed to meet this need.
The Hamilton FASD Collaborative is a group of service providers dedicated to supporting and growing awareness about FASD. The Hamilton FASD Collaborative has representatives from Hamilton services providers in child protection, adult developmental services, education, substance use, indigenous, mental health, and justice. Each of these stakeholders provide services in kind.
The Hamilton FASD Resource Team, as part of the Collaborative, provides Community Education sessions, In-service Training and Case conferences to families, caregivers and service providers that support individuals with confirmed or suspected FASD.
