In this presentation Dr. Jacqueline Pei will discuss an evidence informed model of intervention for individuals with FASD: Towards Healthy Outcomes. Achieving healthy outcomes for individuals with FASD requires working together towards meaningful goals for each individual. Recognizing this we have produced an evidence informed model to help us to identify key needs for all humans – with specific consideration for how existing literature can inform our practice.

Within this model we present a developmental lifespan perspective, that is enacted within interactive systems, and is strength-based and empowered.

This presentation will be 90 minutes.

The term developmental disabilities (DD) refers to people with intellectual disability, autism spectrum, fetal alcohol spectrum and related neurodevelopmental genetic syndromes. Children, youth, and adults with DD are vulnerable to high rates of general health and mental health concerns. This interactive 2020 conference will focus on practical strategies to optimize the quality of life for people with DD. Our goal is to help clinicians and caregivers learn effective ways to work with people with DD, and their families, in partnership to improve their quality of life experience. The conference will also provide educational and informative psychiatric, behavioural, mental health, and complex physical health updates specific to people with DD, and showcase best practices in the field. This conference will engage health care providers and educators from a wide range of professional disciplines in knowledge transfer and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Learning Objectives:

Review evidence based clinical best practices in physical, mental health and education for people with DD
Explore new research in physical, mental health and education for individuals with DD
Identify core issues and challenges facing individuals with DD and their families
Consider ways to build partnerships to maximize health and wellbeing
Develop connections, share knowledge and common experiences with others involved in the field of DD

Cliquez ici pour plus d’informations

This event has been cancelled. Please see here for more info.

Although there have been thousands of published articles on FASD, there still remains limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD. As individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas continues to be critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.

During this research conference on adolescents and adults with FASD, participants can expect to:

  • Connect the identified needs of community workers, healthcare providers, and families with the research community
  • Recognize emerging research findings and how they might better assist ethical policy and decision making and the development of
    integrated and collaborative approaches across systems
  • Examine practice-based evidence, projects and programs to understand the potential connections to research and potential
    longitudinal studies
  • Engage in knowledge exchange and dialogue through sessions, networking and the direct experience of individuals with FASD and families
