KidsInclusive is pleased to host two Ministry of Children and Youth Services funded FASD Worker positions – one for Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington and one for Lanark, Leeds & Grenville.
FASD Workers support families of children and youth with FASD by leading the development of a strengths based support plan for children/youth with FASD or suspected FASD. The FASD worker will work with the family, service providers and educators to build capacity for supporting the child/youth up to the age of 18 (or 21 if still in school) in family, school and community life.
