I will be hosting an FASD event evening at Turner Park Library, Hamilton, Ontario. Speakers will include Mark Courtepatte and Savanna Pietrantonio from Hamilton FASD Caregivers Support Group, and Tim Groenewegen, a special needs educator with the HWDSB. Together we hope to bring information, guidance, and support to those interested in learning about FASD, its symptoms, challenges, and services. Event is free.
Update! Given the terrible weather: freezing rain, snow, ice pellets and strong winds, on the day of the event, the turn-out was amazing. Thank you to all who pushed through the bad weather to attend. It was my privilege to host the event and also speak on my experiences raising four grandchildren with FASD over a twenty-year period. I also invited two speakers: Mark Courtepatte, co-founder of Hamilton (Ontario) FASD Caregiver Support Group, and, Tim Groenewegen, a special needs educator with HWDSB.
Mark offered the participants information on FASD, its symptoms, effects, challenges, and misconceptions. Tim spoke of his experiences teaching children with FASD, his strategies, goals, and coping skills within the classroom.
Thank you to Mark, Tim, Kate Morrison: Event Librarian, and all who attended.
