FASD in Education
Education matters and we believe that all children and young people affected by FASD should be given every chance to reach their academic potential and to have an enjoyable experience of education, whatever that looks like.

Providing resources around all aspects of education
Home Schooling Hub
This project is led by Lisa and is in response to the increasing number of parents opting to home school their children affected by FASD. We are delighted to announce that we have now set up a specialist Home School Hub to connect parents in this situation. Membership costs just £30 per family per year.
Kite Marking Scheme - "FASD Aware" & FASD in Education Champions
This project is led by Joanne and is to both support parents to have confidence in choosing a school, and educational establishments in ensuring they are in a better, more informed position to support children affected by FASD in their setting. Individual teachers can also have the chance to be at the cutting edge of education in the UK, being the designated Champion for FASD in Education not only for their school, but their wider geographic area.
Additional Training & Resources for Teachers & Parents
Training, including Twilight Sessions, Inset Days / Designated Teacher Training Days (whole days, seminars, key note speakers or workshops) and 30 minute lunchtime updates can all be arranged through our FASD in Education Project. (Please note charges apply).
If a particular child is struggling or causing concerns, we can also provide individual assessments of pupils. (Please note charges apply).
Additional printed resources for teachers and parents will be published over the coming year.
