Spotlight on FASD

Jessica Rutherford and Clare Devanney-Glynn are the pioneering hosts of the Spotlight on FASD Podcast and we welcome them on to discuss this condition in the sphere of education.

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is the term for a group of conditions caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol and, perhaps surprisingly, it is the most common, non-genetic cause of learning disability in the UK (British Medical Association, 2007). Studies have shown that as much as 1 student in every class may suffer from FASD.

It is incredibly important that educators and medical professionals treat FASD seriously.

Here, we explore what tutors can do in a tutoring session to aid students with this condition. (Hint: it is NOT what happens in a classroom setting)

The best resource for tutors who are new to FASD, as recommended by Jessica, has been produced by the NHS for Ayrshire And Arran, Understanding FASD: What Educators need to know. Start here and continue to listen in to the Spotlight on FASD Podcast.

If you would like to be part of the UK's first ever Level 3 Qualification in Tutoring, enrol now by clicking here and be the first in a new crop of motivated, committed, qualified tutors. Over 8 hours of workshop-style sessions led by industry experts, you'll set yourself apart in a crowded space.

We can't wait to see you there.

Don't forget to review the show (on Apple, preferably!) - we'd love to hear how you found the advice, guidance and discussions inside.
