If you are a parent or professional seeking practical suggestions for a person with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), you are not alone. Despite being 5% of the population of the United States, there are virtually no services and supports for people with FASD's.

Nate Sheets is a professional with 10 years of practical experience working in family and foster homes, as well as schools and residential settings. He trains parents, therapists, teachers, and social workers all over North America, showing them that people with FASD's can absolutely make progress and improve, but to do so they need to be supported in a way that makes sense for how their brain works.

In this workshop, Nate introduces you to Cognitive Supports, a model he has developed that allows parents and professionals working with anyone to re-frame difficulties and behaviors in a different way. Nate knows that punishments and traditional responses do not work for people with FASD's, and continually trying these things only creates more stress, more challenging behaviors, and more strained relationships.

If you are looking for a positive, intensive training with a professional who has worked with hundreds of families with FASD's, please join us in Salem for this one-of-a-kind experience!

Cost of attendance is $150.00 for families, and $200.00 for professionals. Get your tickets and register online here.
