FASD Fact #20: FASD informed programming adapts to its clients’ needs


An FASD informed professional approach “recognizes that to achieve positive outcomes, it is the system, program, and/or service providers who need to make modifications rather than the person with FASD.”

This includes programming and support that

a) is aware and informed about FASD,

b) makes person-centered accommodations, and

c) is strengths-based.
