The Training Workshops for Parents and Carers are led by Julia Brown, CEO of The FASD Trust, who speaks both on behalf of the Trust and on the basis of her personal experience as an adoptive parent of an FASD child.
As the workshops already held have clearly demonstrated, these events are proving to be very relevant, not just to parents, grandparents or others in a caring role who are already coping with FASD issues, but also to potential adopters who wish to find out more about life with a child affected by FASD.
Professionals are also welcome to come along too, but please bear in mind that this series of events is predominantly aimed at parents /carers and therefore will be very practical about daily life parenting a child with FASD.
The cost of attending an event is £42 per person, or £78 per couple. And if you are are already a Friend of the Trust, remember that you are entitled to a 10% discount on these costs. The current schedule for training workshops is given in this poster.
The location of the Reading workshop (Wednesday, 30th April) is Park United Reformed Church, Palmer Park Avenue, Reading, RG6 1DN.
Please note that the event scheduled for 12th May in Cardiff unfortunately has had to be cancelled.
