While the problems caused by FASD last a lifetime, early intervention to build up a caring, knowledgeable support network can mean those problems don’t have to stop a child from living a healthy, happy and successful life.
Because all kids are meant to play, imagine, and build their successful future
Our children's team is a robust group of health professionals--Diagnostic Coordinator, Paediatrician, Social worker, Nurse, Neuro-Psychologist, Family Support Worker, SLP, OT, and a Cultural Liaison and/or Mental Health Worker as required. Assessment & Diagnostic Clinics for children take place twice monthly.
Complex Youth Clinic team members are chosen by the Clinic Coordinator and determined by a youth’s unique needs. Complex Youth Clinics happen based on the needs of youth clients.
Joanne Lussier Ring was one of the LCFASD’s first employees and was with the centre for 10 years. Joanne’s passion for helping and working with children diagnosed with FASD led to her being instrumental in developing the LCFASD model of work for our outreach role. Upon her retirement, this scholarship was established in her name.
