Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Program

The FASD Program provides support to caregivers and children/youth who are diagnosed with or suspected to have FASD. The program works with caregivers, children/youth, school personnel and other community partners involved to increase knowledge/understanding of FASD and to provide strategies and resources through an FASD lens towards that child/youth’s success. If needed, the program can provide support and guidance for the FASD diagnostic process. 


The Haldimand-Norfolk FASD Caregiver Group is available to all caregivers of children/youth diagnosed with FASD or suspected to have FASD residing in Haldimand or Norfolk. This group meets in person at the Townsend location monthly from September to June. The purpose of the group is to provide a safe space to share experiences, build FASD capacity together and make connections with other caregivers of children/youth living with FASD. 


  • Child/youth diagnosed or suspected to have FASD; a formal diagnosis of FASD is not required
  • Child/youth up to 18 years of age, or up to 21 years of age and attending secondary school
  • Reside in Haldimand or Norfolk county
