3rd Annual FASD Symposium: Transitioning into adulthood

As a parent or caregiver of a youth with FASD, it is vital to remember that teens with FASD are usually developmentally younger than their chronological age and thus function differently than their same-aged peers. This workshop will explore some of the key transitioning goals for your youth or young adult. We will explore how you can support your loved one as they transition to early adulthood, by learning to understand what supports they may need in the areas of housing, employment, finances and social relationships including sexuality. Presented by: Joyce Hamelin of Citizen Advocacy Ottawa’s Fetal Alcohol Resource Program and Barb Sabourin, an individual with lived experience as a caregiver.
