Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and training program for placement support workers in Tasmania: a pilot project

 

Overview

The goal of this project was to develop a Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) training program aimed at building the capacity of service providers in the Child Protection sector to bring support to those who care for individuals living with a FASD.

Pre and post focus groups were held with service providers and foster carers as part of the evaluation process, which guided the development of the Trainers' kit, and provided feedback on the impact of newly acquired knowledge and skills in supporting the placements of children in care.

The development phase accounted for content which was both flexible and adaptable to the needs of particular workplace settings. The Trainers' kit included presentation slides with accompanying notes. National Organisation for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (NOFASD) Australia resources were also included, together with a reference section including key resources on FASD.

As a result, NOFASD Australia will establish a mentoring group of interested participants to review the content of the Trainers' kits, including a break down into smaller sections and possible alternative options for the delivery of training in some workplace settings.
