Happy January Waterloo Region FASD Community of Practice Members! Please take a few minutes to read through out latest CoP Update. There are a number of initiatives taking place in our area with a focus on supporting Caregivers living with FASD. We know that Caregivers need training, support and respite opportunities and we hope that some of the initiatives taking place in our area will provide just that.

The Developmental Services Resource Centre will once again be offering the FASD Caregiver Training Series. Register early as space fills quickly.

We thank Health Nexus and the Waterloo Region Family Network for their partnership in bringing Dan Dubovsky to our area to share his message about Nourishing the Caregiver- Living with FASD- The Importance of Self Care and FASD-Supporting Caregivers- Success for All

CanFASD FREE Online Training – Foundations in FASD

Foundations in FASD is a basic training course intended for everyone that will come into contact with individuals with FASD including all sectors of work, families, individuals with FASD, spouses, and the general public. This foundational level training program provides the perspective of individuals who have FASD, is evidence-based, employs a culturally sensitive approach, and is presented in a way that is responsive to the learner’s needs.

NOFAS-UK is pleased to launch an innovative booklet designed to promote wellbeing among children with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). It provides information in a fun and visual format, emphasising the strengths of those with FASD and highlighting strategies that can help.

Even though the weather is bitterly cold we need to start thinking ahead to supportive summer plans for children and youth with FASD. The Waterloo Region Family Network is holding their Summer Camp and Recreation Fair on February 11th from 6-8pm.

In addition, Inclusion Support through the
City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo and City of Cambridge opens at the beginning of March. Click on each city to find out more information. Inclusion workers who work at camps provided by the cities receive training about FASD from the FASD Coordinator at the Developmental Services Resource Centre.
FASD and the Criminal Justice System- What Can We Do? @CPRI

Register HERE:

Adolescents and adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) are overrepresented in the criminal justice system, yet evidence remains limited regarding the best approaches for addressing this problem. Key identified needs include further education for professionals working in criminal justice contexts, and ensuring that policy shifts are evidence-informed. This workshop will involve a series of presentations, an interdisciplinary panel, and round table discussions.
