One of the common complaints of families with a member with FASD is the lack of accessibility to services. This activity will give you an opportunity to explore what services are available in your area, as well as learning about other regional, provincial, federal and other community resources and agencies available in other regions. The goal is not only to find these services and provide contact information but also clarify and confirm what they have to offer that may be of particular benefit to families with FASD.
1.Considering the potential needs of families with members with FASD, find 3 agencies, services or other organizations that may be helpful to families with individuals with FASD. Check the community resource categories below for ideas. Be creative. Do not choose three organizations that work specifically with FASD populations (although you can include these, make sure you provide some variety).
2.Research the resource using websites, pamphlets, etc. Fill in as much information as possible on the community resource form.
3.Contact the agency/resource to obtain any information missing from your contact sheet.
4.Submit your resource summaries to the Dropbox for marking.
