This booklet contains three presentations that would be helpful to employers, employment counsellors or any agencies that support people with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), a permanent brain injury that occurs during pregnancy.
The authors explain that people with FASD have problems processing information and often struggle to understand what they hear and read. The first presentation focuses on using plain language, while the second offers strategies for speaking in a way that someone with FASD will be able to understand.
In the third presentation, the authors offer background information on FASD and discuss some of the misconceptions about this disability.
