FASD PROGRAMS

The FASD Network is excited to announce that in 2019 the organization has launched a new educational program for individuals with FASD. We would like to thank the NIB Trust Fund for funding the "Understanding FASD" educational program. It is the hope of the Network that this program will help individuals to learn about the complexity of their disability, gain valuable life skills, and develop the ability to implement strategies that can assist them in day-to-day life.

Information about the program and how to access services is available below. If you have any questions or would like more information about programming available through the Network, please contact:

"Understanding FASD" Educational Program

The two-part program includes an introductory workshop to explain what FASD is and how it may affect their lives, monthly workshops discussing a variety of topics to help participants develop valuable life skills, and personalized lesson plans with one-on-one educational meetings to help further develop life skills, attain personal growth, and overcome the challenges caused by FASD. The program is specially designed for our participants’ unique needs and diverse learning styles.


The “Understanding FASD” educational program is on-going with no deadline to access. It is a voluntary program with no cost to participate. The program is open to participants who are:

  • Suspected of living with FASD (or formally diagnosed)

  • Residents of Saskatoon (or within 50 km of city limits)

  • Status Indian, First Nation citizen or Metis

Introduction to FASD Workshops

Each participant will begin by attending a short workshop explaining what FASD is and what affects it may have on their lives. This will help participants of the program understand why they have experienced certain struggles their whole lives. It will also be an introduction into some of the skills, strategies, and supports they can access to overcome these struggles. Workshops will be scheduled on the second Tuesday of every month at CUMFI (315 Avenue M South) from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm. 

Upcoming Workshops:

November 12, 2019

Personalized Lesson Plans

Participants who may benefit from additional instruction will have the option to meet one-on-one with a facilitator to receive personalized education. This will include determining which areas to focus on to develop life skills and self-development. Since individuals with FASD experience a myriad of struggles it can be areas as diverse as simple day-to-day tasks or larger skill sets. Participants of the program can access these services for as long as needed. They are also welcome to reengage with the program as needs arise.
