 “A Lifetime of FASD: Navigating Systems, Silences and Transitions”

Dr. Michelle Stewart (Department of Justice Studies) and the FASD Centre/Regina Community Clinic are hosting a workshop focusing on the lived experience of individuals with FASD and the challenges they can face over a lifetime including during key transitions (youth to adult for example).

The morning session will be lead by Dr. Dolores Logan (FASD Centre/Regina Community Clinic) who will discuss the effects of prenatal exposure to alcohol on the developing fetus (registered participants will receive certificate of completion following participation).  The afternoon will be a workshop focused on key life stages. The first session will be lead by Lisa Brownstone who is both a caregiver and retired occupational therapist; Lisa will offer her perspective including key transition periods, systems, and barriers she’s helped to navigate.  Myles Himmelreich, a well-known public speaker who is living with FASD, will then lead the next discussion; Myles will discuss his experiences and strategies in navigating systems.  Dr. Michelle Stewart and her research team will then discuss recent research conducted in partnership with The Asante Centre, and PLEA Community Services in British Columbia; this project focused on people living with FASD and the concerns they have about aging with FASD. These sessions will conclude with a short round-table discussion.
