Resource Type podcast

In this episode, FASD Key Worker, Dena Swann, explains the role of Key Workers and how they might be able to support teachers. Dena's dedication and care for these kids and their families are clearly felt through her stories. She is a strong advocate for the work they do and the wonderful people they support. It is important to note that the FASD Key Worker programs can look a little different in each region but at the core, they provide support to families of children and youth under 19 with FASD or who are At-Risk for FASD. This can look like meeting with families, liaise with schools, support in accessing community resources, providing clarity and understanding with assessments, attending IEP meetings with families, and much more.
