School Leaders: Guidance Counsellors & SEN / Mainstream Teachers
This workshop will provide an overview for schools leaders & key staff members of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD). It will include some of the most common behavioural and cognitive difficulties associated with it and point to some simple/practical adaptions teachers and schools can adopt to enhance classroom management and teaching and learning in general.
• Gain basic knowledge of the contributing factors and incidence rates for FASD in Ireland. • Become familiar with common signs and symptoms of FASD in students and the typical difficulties for both student and professional when these are misunderstood. • Practical ways to improve the fit between the unique needs of the student and what classroom teachers and the wider school community can do to support
