Resources for Professional Services
The diagnosis and support of those with FASD involves the participation of a range of support agencies including Health Professionals and Allied Health Services, Teachers and educators, Police and Justice services and many other support services.
We are in the process of developing a range of resources that you can use to support those families living with FASD.
Support isn't only required at the diagnosis and early intervention stages - it is required for life and therefore impacts on other services such as Police and Criminal Justice Services. The effects of FASD and early life trauma can effect people in different ways including difficulty understanding action and consequence, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. These people are often undiagnosed and considered defiant, rebellious or lazy. Building our understandings of the behavioural characteristics of those suffering from a range of traumas will enable us to reframe our thinking, reduce judgement and make sense of complex scenarios. We must work together to support those with FASD and early life trauma as they interact with various services within our community.
