Did you know?

  • FASDs are the leading known cause of preventable physical and mental learning difficulties.
  • FASDs are more common than autism
  • The effects of FASDs last a lifetime.
  • Neurodevelopment research has found that 63% of children born prematurely have some form of disability or SEN, and this figure is higher amongst children born before 28 weeks.

We are offering an information session, based on the ground breaking research by Professor Barry Carpenter, led by Kerry Stewart, member of Westfield Arts College teaching staff.

Kerry will cover:

  • Understanding Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
  • Individuals with a FASD – Strengths, Difficulties, and Approaches
  • Raising awareness of dangers of alcohol in pregnancy
  • How pre term pupils can be supported both in primary phases and as young adults
