Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD): Examining How School Counsellors Can Support Students Diagnosed with FASD Through Life Skills and Social-Emotional Learning
MetadataShow full item record
The research question I will addressed in this capstone is: How can school counsellors support students diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder through life skills and social-emotional learning? I will explore what FASD is and how it impacts the individual diagnosed with FASD in the school setting. I also will examine the skills and strategies used in life skills and social-emotional learning programs to support individuals diagnosed with FASD. I will define what life skills and social-emotional learning is, the benefits of using these skills in a school setting, and how these programs impact a student diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. I have developed an 8-week program combining foundational skills from both life skills and social-emotional learning programs to help foster success in the school setting and in everyday life.
