PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Log in to leave feedback.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) affects approximately 4% of Canadians and is Canada’s leading developmental disability (CanFASD, 2023). Since FASD is more prevalent than Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, educators can expect to have at least one student with FASD in their classroom dynamic (ibid). Students with FASD bring many positive assets to the classroom; however, educators often report being unprepared for the various needs and challenges of the developmental disability. This presentation aims to support educational professionals to improve their classroom practice through research-driven instructional strategies and approaches for students with FASD. These practical ideas are presented within an RTI framework that both honours restorative justice and trauma-responsive approaches. Educators curious about FASD are also encouraged to attend as the strategies presented will be beneficial and appropriate to a wide range of students.
