Prevention

is the most effective method of reducing the impact of FASD

Introduction

This prevention module shares important concepts related to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). Education and awareness of this condition is the key to prevention and supporting healthy pregnancies. Within this module you will find: a powerpoint presentation, educator guide, lesson plan, videos, resources, activities, assessment options, engaging case studies, and much more!

Although this presentation is intended to require minimal initial FASD knowledge or experience, it is recommended to build some background knowledge and review the additional information in the educator lesson plan and guide before presenting. This module has been created so that the content can be shared in one session (45-60 minutes).

There are 2 options to presenting this prevention module:

  1. Teacher led - use the powerpoint, educator guide, and lesson plan to teach your chosen content at your own pace (videos are embedded in the powerpoint).
  2. POPFASD led - Play the videos in Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, including videos from "additional resources." The POPFASD teacher will present the content and lead the learning activities found within the videos.
