Pebbles Workshops NWR-FASD Society

May 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am – May 15, 2021 @ 1:30 pm

Pebbles is a 3-hour workshop (condensed) that explores the complexity of behaviours that are observed in individuals diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
This workshop was originally designed by Diane Malbin for the NWR FASD Society in Northern Alberta.
The workshop:
• Provides a basic understanding of the role of the brain in the behaviours observed in individuals with FASD.
• This session helps the individual to explore the complexity of this disability and discuss the type of strategies needed to support the individuals impacted with FASD within the home, community and classroom.
• There is opportunity to discuss specific behaviours within the home, community and classroom/school settings

The facilitator of this workshop, Wanda Beland, is a parent of now 4 adults prenatally exposed to alcohol and is also the Executive Director/FASD Educator for the last 15 years for the NWR FASD Society – Mackenzie Network. The Pebbles workshop, always intended to ensure life experience learnings are included, will come from the perspective of a parent and a person who has worked in the field and developed programming for individuals in a rural/remote area of Northern Alberta.

Pebbles Workshops are informative and helpful to all citizens to some degree, as FASD knows no cultural boundaries.
