40 minute FASD Prevention Conversation addresses the importance of prevention of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure, the social issues surrounding alcohol use and the importance of conversation about the topic. "Lets Get Real" a prevention presentation for Junior/Senior high students is also available.
PEBBLES is a workshop that reviews the impact of alcohol on the neurological system and identifies the connection of the behaviours observed in various settings to the brain dysfunction caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. This workshop explores the importance of recognizing brain differences to create accommodation and supports for individuals impacted with FASD within the home, school, community, employment and other social situations.
