FASD Outreach Program
A new provincial program is aimed at supporting teachers who have students with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The Prince George district is hosting the service, which is available to districts around the province.
This provincial outreach program provides service through a web site, in-service in school districts, consulting with teachers through e-mail, and finding and making available research of use to teachers of students with FASD.
The best way to find out about these services is through the web site: www.fasdoutreach.ca. You can register on the web site to get access to the services.
The web site includes a blog for sharing of ideas and resources. It also has e-learning modules for learning about FASD, planning instruction, developing an IEP, and tips for teaching. The teacher resource section includes print resources, DVDs, web sites and conferences.
The FASD Outreach Program is funded by the ministry of education. The staff team working out of Prince George includes two teachers, a technical consultant, a clerical assistant, and supervising administrator. It is supported and directed by a multi-district steering committee.
Service can be requested through the web site or by phone at 250-564-6574 (local 233).
