Here at Elucidate Training our aim is to teach people the facts about Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and help support those who are dealing with it on a daily basis.
A huge number of babies are born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Studies show it is a form of brain damage present in possibly 6% of the UK population yet so many members of the general public have not even heard of it. We want to shine a light on this condition by teaching people the facts about FASD and helping to support those who are caring for children who have FASD.
"Of all the substances of abuse, including heroin, cocaine, and marijuana, alcohol produces by far the most serious neurobehavioural effects in the fetus."
Institute of Medicine 1996
Report to Congress
According to the British Medical Association, FASD is in fact the most common non-genetic cause of learning disability in the UK, although it is often misdiagnosed as autism, Aspergers or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
We currently offer workshops, both offsite and onsite, in the following areas:-
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
The workshop will enable you to understand what FASD is, how it can affect people and strategies that can be used to support those living with FASD.
An Introduction to Non Violent Resistance Therapy (NVR)
This workshop introduces the basics of NVR to help those who are dealing with aggressive or even violent behaviour from children decide if this is a therapy that they would like to pursue.
Finding out that your child has FASD can be overwhelming and difficult to deal with. Our aim is to support parents who are going through challenging periods. To provide a sounding board and suggestions to hopefully improve day to day living with a FASD child.
