SCTS was set up with the clear mission of empowering social care workers and carers with the techniques to support young people to resolve the effects of childhood trauma, reclaim their future and fully reintegrate back into society.
One of the issues we face is Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) – the most common, preventable non-genetic cause of learning disabilities in the UK. Yet as this excellent article describes, this condition is still greatly misunderstood.
The article gives an incredibly comprehensive understanding from the perspective of both the child and their carer.
A parent in this article comments:
“We struggle with every aspect of parenting our son. Including trying to get the people who work with him to understand it is brain damage, not willful bad behaviour.”
You can read the full article HERE.
We offer training on this subject to demystify the conditions and explore strategies to support the child. Full details can be found HERE.
We seek to inform and give the best possible strategies to nurture the development of children with this disorder.
