dc.description.abstract Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) can present many challenges for the individual and their family as they work towards accessing the appropriate supports. One major challenge in connecting with the appropriate professionals is communication and informing the support process from the perspective of the family. Families can have a large impact on creating positive outcomes and it is important that the voice of the family and the individual is heard throughout the support process. The purpose of this project is to conduct a literature review of various topics surrounding FASD, the need for many different professionals to be involved in the support of a child with FASD, and the importance of family involvement in the support of a child with FASD and the multidisciplinary team. The information gathered in the literature review was used to create a manual that families of children with FASD will be able to use as a source of information on FASD as well as guide for creating an effect working relationship with professionals involved in their child’s support. The intent is to assist families in getting more involved in the many facets of the support process and hopefully lead to better outcomes for individuals with FASD. en_US
