If you are a FASD worker and want to know how to set up a youth with FASD for success in adulthood, the video link below may help. Watch the video link below from Pateresa Winter of Lakeland Centre for FASD https://lcfasd.com/ . She brought her 12 yrs of experience doing transitional planning in a rural and remote setting for youth and young adults with FASD into adulthood yesterday with the Rural FASD Support Network. Lakeland Centre provides this service not to just northern Albertans with FASD but also Metis and First Nations people regardless of whether they have FASD or not. She shared what steps she follows, where transitional planning fits in the process, and the priorities she focuses on.
She also provided the main document she uses including her checklist. As Mariah, our FASD worker said, she couldn’t stop taking notes because of the incredible amount of information that was given. https://youtu.be/ODcr2JK8hr8
