New e-learning website for school staff supporting students with FASD

New e-learning website for school staff supporting students with FASD and other disabilities

Positive Behaviour Supports for Children (www.pbsc.info) was developed by Mount Royal University with support from the Government of Alberta. This series of related websites is designed to enhance the capacity of families, aides and school staff in promoting positive behaviours and managing challenging behaviours, and to support students' learning and success.

The site has added two new portals:
1.    Through a Child's Eyes, to help parents and professionals talk about different diagnoses and how they affect children's perspectives of the world; and
2.    Planning for Success, to help families, service providers and Family Support for Children with Disabilities workers develop effective Individualized Service Plans. 
 
Please feel free to share this information with your stakeholders.
For more information, please contact Marni Pearce, Director, School and Community Supports for Children and Youth Branch, at marni.pearce@gov.ab.ca or 780-422-5045. Dial 310-0000 first for toll-free access.
