What is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder?
Anderson Therapy Services has been collaborating and working with Indigenous/First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities across Northern Canada, Ontario and Quebec.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is an umbrella term that includes a wide range of effects and disabilities that can occur to an individual whose mother consumed alcohol during pregnancy. An individual with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder can have cognitive, physical, social, emotional and learning disabilities.
While allied health therapists cannot diagnosis FASD, they can support families by creating functional goals to meet the unique needs of individual children.
Our therapy services for Indigenous/First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities can be accessed in remote areas using our online videoconferencing technology as well as on-site visits. Our unique service delivery model, in partnership with communities, has helped many First Nations children and youth achieve success across various needs.
