Ask the expert: event for parents hosted by FASD Hub South West

You asked we listened, not to be missed!

  • Ask the Expert event: Dr Cassie Jackson Clinical Psychologist and host Director of FASD lead a presentation with questions and answers around Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), Learning Difficulties and Learning Disability. This will be a bespoke session drilling down into learning needs.
  • Wednesday 26 June, 8:15pm to 9:15pm
  • Please read more about this event and secure your ticket by booking here. We will unpick the importance of getting a ‘learning diagnosis’, where we hope the session will give you tools in your Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) toolbox to enable you access a broader range of services to support this need.

We aim to incorporate information from learning disability services into the session and where we will provide a clear definition around your rights to support.
