The purpose of these resources is to give school staff ideas for classroom strategies and accommodations for students with FASD. Many students with FASD require a specialized approach in different areas of their educational programming. Some students may show characteristics of FASD, but do not have a diagnosis.
Classroom strategies may be beneficial to organizing and supporting learning for all these students. Teachers can adapt these strategies to best meet the individual needs of their students. Using a flexible, thoughtful approach, and maintaining an accepting and supportive attitude, are key to effective programming for these students.
Students diagnosed with FASD in the public educational system are typically difficult to manage and most are placed in behavioural programs. Offering individualized and customized education, along with counseling and life support has proven to be effective.
