Behaviour support training for parents and carers of Aboriginal children with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

Aboriginal leaders in Fitzroy Valley (Kimberley, Western Australia) identified prevention, diagnosis and management of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) as a community priority and invited researchers from The University of Sydney to initiate a parenting support program to give parents and carers of Aboriginal children practical help in dealing with the substantial stresses caused by child behavioural problems attributable to FASD. Our proposed project adopts a public health approach and will provide community-wide parenting training for parents/carers of Aboriginal children, including children affected with FASD, residing in the greater Fitzroy area (Fitzroy Crossing town and nearby communities).
