Are you new to working with foetal alcohol spectrum disorder? Do you need some information about the condition as well as ideas for some classroom activities and guidance on how to support a young person with this condition? If the answer is yes, then look no further! Here you will find links to some outstanding printable guides to help you on your way.
Our friends at the SSAT have been working on a project called the Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CLDD) Research Project. As part of this project, they’ve made some fantastic resources available to the general public, with education professionals in mind. Below you will find information on the briefing packs they’ve put together, as well as links to their downloadable/printable sheets/guides. Take a look and we are sure you’ll agree that these are an invaluable resource – especially if you or your staff members have not worked with this condition before.
About the Briefing Packs
These briefing packs provide initial information about conditions which often overlap with others to form the complex make up of children with complex learning difficulties and disabilities (CLDD). There are ten packs on different topics that can be downloaded , each of which includes:
(a) Briefing sheet: This sheet provides initial information about these conditions for those who want a brief introduction (eg teachers and higher level teaching assistants). It provides references to some key texts about the condition.
(b) Classroom support sheet: This sheet provides ‘must have’ basic information about the condition for staff newly arrived in the classroom and needing to work immediately with a young person who has that condition.
(c) Information sheet: For those who would like to follow up the topic in greater depth, this sheet provides more information with further references.
There is also a glossary to explain any terms or concepts not explained in the sheets. More information about the packs, their function and tips for use can be found here.
