What does an FASD Key Worker do?
FASD Key Workers help families to understand Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), by providing education and information specific to the needs of the child or youth and the family. They work with families to help them understand their child’s strengths and challenges and ways to support them.
They are familiar with community resources, help families get support, give health and education information, and help in the development of local support services. They also: give practical and emotional support, advocate for family and child, help with formal diagnostic process. FASD Key Workers have many resources for families, caregivers, and service providers!
