Welcome to the Caregiver Curriculum on FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) 2014! The purpose of this curriculum is to provide a venue for caregivers including foster parents, families, kinship care, youth and child care workers, child welfare services, and others trying to understand and cope with many of the life challenges faced by children with FASD.

Please begin by viewing the "Introduction" documents below. They will provide you with an overview of the curriculum and instructions on how to move through the modules.

Both PowerPoint and PDF versions of files are available for all modules. Due to their large sizes, files may take a few minutes to download.
