Challenges for School Children of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

Challenges for School Children of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

Mark Courtepatte is co-chair of the Hamilton and Area Parent and Caregiver FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders) Support Group, http://www.hamiltonfasdsupport.ca/, and one of the organizing members of the Youth and Sibling FASD Support Group. He describes his work, the experiences of FASD that his work has created for him, and the Groups’ support that’s provided to school children, and their families and family caregivers. He discusses the challenges created by FASD for children beginning their lives as school children, changing from children into teenagers, and completing school and moving on to adult life. He explains the ways in which support helps school children, their families and their family caregivers overcome the challenges. He says what more he wants to do and to see done, and by whom, to promote support for elementary and high-school children living with FASD, and for their families and their family caregivers.
