This presentation explores the benefits of an FASD caregiver mentorship program and the importance of acceptance, compassion and understanding from someone who shares the same experience of parenting individuals with FASD.
Our presenters will discuss the importance of coaching and mentoring caregivers to advocate for their loved ones and involving their own natural supports in the mentorship program. They will also share their mentorship program success stories and caregiving strategies and ideas that work for them.
Specific information about the FASD mentorship program (provided by Wood’s Homes in Calgary) will be shared.
This presentation will be of interest to community services and front-line workers as well as caregivers supporting persons with FASD.
