Towards healthy outcomes for individuals with FASD: Advancing a common intervention framework
In this presentation Dr. Jacqueline Pei will discuss an evidence informed model of intervention for individuals with FASD: Towards Healthy Outcomes. Achieving healthy outcomes for individuals with FASD requires working together towards meaningful goals for each individual. Recognizing this we have produced an evidence informed model to help us to identify key needs for all humans – with specific consideration for how existing literature can inform our practice.

Within this model we present a developmental lifespan perspective, that is enacted within interactive systems, and is strength-based and empowered.

This presentation will be 90 minutes.
