Basic Information About FASD - Canada FASD Research Network

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a diagnostic term describing the range of effects that can occur in an individual who was prenatally exposed to alcohol. These effects may include physical, cognitive, memory, behavioural and learning difficulties with lifelong implications. FASD is a brain-based and therefore, in most cases, it is an invisible injury; very few of those affected have identifying facial features. While individuals may share common characteristics, every individual is unique with their own strengths and challenges.

Expanding our View of Children and Spaces with 360 Video

Children often charm and surprise with their thoughts, ideas and imaginative play scenarios, which can take some unexpected turns and fantastic plot twists. In fact, sometimes the things children say and do leave us scratching our heads in wonder: that is they challenge us and leave us to wonder “why”. Why did the child say/do that? Why did a situation in which two children are tugging a toy between them come to be? We may not always have a complete picture.
