Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Key Services and Support (FASD KSS) is now a well-established service in Simcoe County and York Region that assists caregivers with FASD education and navigating relevant resources and linkages to appropriate FASD-informed services. Key Services and Support Coordinators provide services to children and youth up to the age of 18 (or 21 if still attending secondary school) and their families. The Key Services and Support Coordinators have expertise in FASD and will assist families in accessing information and relevant resources to better understand FASD and how it may impact their child or youth’s abilities. Coordinators work in partnership with families to develop, monitor, and update a flexible plan based on assessment, strengths, and needs, and the family’s vision, goals, and concerns to help them overcome barriers.
