Welcome to our podcast TalkEd! Included in the TALKeD podcast is a special series, titled “FASD Informed Classroom Strategies.” This series features BC educators sharing FASD Informed Strategies that are making a difference for students in their classrooms and schools. In this episode we talk with a BC Educator who shares her experience in implementing FASD-informed strategies. She also describes the positive outcomes of taking the training as a team and how that built knowledge and consistency in their approach.
In this episode, the educator mentioned using the LEIC to support thier student. The LEIC Planning page is an informal tool that was created by the POPFASD team. It incorporates information from the field of FASD and effective student planning practices. The purpose for the tool is to guide a constructive and positive conversation about a student, focusing on the student's strengths and needs. The tool is most effectively used when all team members have a solid understanding of FASD.
