What is FASD?

As part of the National SENCo Award programme, I took part in an interesting introductory session to Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). It is a label / condition I was aware of, but had little knowledge on. Since then I have started to use the excellent website of the National Organisation for Foetal Alcohol Syndrome UK to find out more.

The following NOFAS-UK video provides a good further introduction to FASD and could be emailed to colleagues across a school or better still, shown to them as part of a staff meeting and then discussed in relation to specific students.
