Free Wananga on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
If you are a community or health worker, parent, grandparent, caregiver, teacher, or front-line worker...you need to hear about this. Reported by Northland Principals, the Children's Commissioner, Judge Andrew Becroft and health professionals across New Zealand as a "hidden tsunami" of children in need, FASD is a threat to our whakapapa and can lead to a lifetime of tragedy.
This free workshop highlights the latest information you should know to better assist you in working with women of childbearing age, whanau, and those who may have been affected by prenatal alcohol exposure.
You will learn what FASD is, why it occurs, how it manifests, the important key messages, advice to share and much much more...
