Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Services
SOAHAC staff can provide education, screening, and referrals for diagnosis regarding FASD. These services are for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people at any age, from infant to adult. We also provide further support to individuals and caregivers who are affected by FASD by assisting them to navigate the diagnostic process, and through advocacy, referrals, resources and strategies.

One to One Support
SOAHAC staff will support you to gain knowledge of FASD and to practice strategies for dealing with FASD. This can include using your culture based knowledge, such as the use of medicines, ceremonies, teachings, and cultural activities. We will develop a plan of care that is wholistic and client-driven.
Group Support (London)
We also run an FASD London Community Support Group, which is open to everyone. Here, participants can access FASD information, cultural specific knowledge, and a sharing circle.
For FASD support (including self-referrals and one to one appointments), please contact the SOAHAC site of your choice.
