FAMILIES MOVING FORWARD

The Families Moving Forward (FMF) Program  helps children with Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), their families, and the professionals who care for them. It is a positive parenting program designed for children from ages 3 to 13 (approximately).Some of the aims of the Families Moving Forward Program:

  • Support parents and help them better understand their children who are affected by prenatal alcohol
  • Give parents new skills and strategies to use when caring for their children with FASD
  • Enable teachers and health care providers, as well as family members, to recognize the signs of FASD
  • Train health care providers in evidence-based services they can offer to families with alcohol-affected children
  • Encourage family progress in a positive direction
  • Restore hope and optimism to families caring for children with FASD
  • Reduce the chance that children affected by prenatal alcohol will have secondary disabilities later in life
