We stand for the rights of individuals with an FASD to have an appropriate, supportive, and quality education. Every child deserves the brightest future possible and a quality education is an important springboard to health, employment, and opportunity. Educational equity exists when individuals have equitable access to high quality educational opportunities and environments regardless of age, race, income, or ability status.
The center is committed to help children and youth do better in the classroom and in life by supporting educators and related professionals, families and students, leaders and policymakers to understand the implications of brain injuries associated with FASD and to work towards addressing the persistent disparities faced by students on the spectrum. We work across systems to support better outcomes for students with an FASD.
FASD is Common, but Misunderstood
There is an urgent need in our communities to recognize this disability and to develop strategies to support children and youth on the spectrum. In spite of the prevalence of the disorder, FASD is often misunderstood.
Charting a National Course
We are convening stakeholders in the field to develop strategies and promising practices to address the significant implications faced by students, families, and schools related to FASD. Take advantage of our resources and make a commitment to join our movement to address disparities and work for educational equity!
