Many Doors, No Master Key: FASD Service Needs

The two slides in the Many Doors, No Master Key presentation illustrate the numerous services needed by an actual child with FAS (named Brandan) and his family; the first showing services accessed while Brandan was a toddler, the second showing services needed while he was in elementary school. When Brandan was a toddler, he and his family needed more than 40 service providers in a number of service systems (health, education, social and community, and legal and financial). The number of services increased from his toddler years to his elementary school years.

While Brandan’s case cannot be generalized to every child with an FASD, these slides do offer an accurate representation of the importance of coordinated, multi-systemic care in assisting children and families coping with an FASD. Families and caregivers are encouraged to use these slides in presentations on FASD, or as educational tools when working with providers or educators, so that everyone assisting the child understands the broad range of services need to help him or her achieve success.

Slides are available in PowerPoint and PDF.
