Helping Communities

It takes a whole community to prevent and treat FASD. A strong community is one in which people have information about FASD, nobody feels the need to drink while pregnant and children and adults with FASD are supported and able to flourish.

We support communities to develop diagnostic and treatment programs in their area, drawing on our extensive experience of building professional FASD treatment teams across the country. We can work with the coordinators of new FASD diagnostic and treatment clinics, even those in rural areas. We have prepared specifically-designed training and presentations to groups of all sizes, that could include frontline workers, parent groups, self-help groups, service groups, college or high school students.

The Lakeland Centre for FASD has been providing diagnostic/assessment services for both children and adults since 2000 and training for new and developing FASD diagnostic/assessment teams since 2002. We help a broad range of groups access training services.

In July 2011, we were contracted by the Cross Ministries Committee on FASD to deliver and facilitate a continuum of training, resources and supports for Alberta FASD Assessment & Diagnostic Clinics and their team members.

A dedicated Training Coordinator is available to deliver annual clinician training and targeted training upon request, provide clinic support and answer questions, to build provincial relationships, develop assessment & diagnostic related resources and host an annual Clinic Coordinator meeting.

Prevention Conversation

The FASD Prevention Conversation is a new approach to training that focuses on the power of relationship and conversation to inspire change and invite open, honest dialogue. Reducing anxiety and providing practical strategies for talking with women about the use of alcohol during pregnancy is key.

We welcome the opportunity to come and speak with your group about how to engage in effective, respectful conversations with women about alcohol and pregnancy. To learn more about The Prevention Conversation, click the button below:
