This hands-on workshop will focus on key issues raised by participants and caregivers/parents across Canada and will highlight current research and strategies to provide effective supports for families and individuals with FASD across the lifespan. This event will be driven by the needs and experiences of those with FASD.

Canada FASD Research Network is an agency committed to evidence-based approaches to addressing issues associated with FASD. With that in mind, it is imperative to hear from caregivers and individuals with FASD about the challenges they are facing so that CanFASD can try to address those those challenges through research. Research that is committed to evidence-based approaches and is meant to have timely impact on policy, programming and practices.

Lunch will be provided on both days and free parking at the University for all registered participants. Further information about discounted block reservations (hotels) will be updated on this site and sent to registered participants mid-June.
