Understanding young children living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)
As early childhood educators we seek to support all children in our care, we come from a strong foundation of inclusive practice. This is embedded in our learning frameworks and in the National Quality Standards, however doing this well requires a strong understanding of the needs of children.
With almost one in four pregnancies unplanned, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an often undiagnosed neuro-developmental disorder that is sometimes referred to as the ‘invisible disability’. This guide and collection of resources, developed with NOFASD Australia, has been designed to help build educator knowledge, skills and understanding.
