Here at Elucidate Training our aim is to teach people the facts about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) to help raise awareness of this condition
A huge number of babies are born with Fetal 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 highlight the need for more support
"Of all the substances of abuse, including heroin, cocaine, and marijuana, alcohol produces by far the most serious neurobehavioural effects in the fetus."

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:-
Fetal 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.
FASD in the Classroom
The workshop will enable educators to understand what FASD is, how it can affect their pupils and give examples of how it might manifest in the classroom setting.
How NVR Can Help
This workshop explains the basics of NVR, and how it helped a family who were dealing with aggressive behaviour from their children, in order to help people to decide if this is a therapy
that they would like to pursue.
In September 2021 I felt honoured to host FASD Around the Globe, an event featuring representatives of organisations from around the world trying to raise FASD awareness. This event can be viewed here.
