Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Services
The Fetal Alcohol Educator provides education, screening, and referrals for diagnosis regarding FASD. These services are for Aboriginal 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
The Fetal Alcohol Educator will support you to gain knowledge of and practice strategies for dealing with FASD. This can include using your culturally 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.
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.
FASD Community Capacity Training is available to community frontline workers, which provides an Indigenous perspective to FASD and offers culturally specific resources. The Fetal Alcohol Educator can also support existing FASD education in surrounding communities related to prevention, awareness, and strategies.
