Awareness presentations are 90 minute presentations that provide an introduction to FASD.  These are ideal for agencies whose staff need to understand the importance of recognizing symptoms of FASD in their clients and the need for a brain based approach to support.  These presentations can be provided free of charge to agencies by a member of the Halton FASD Resource Team.
