Complex Behaviour Support Program

The Complex Behaviour Support program responds to the needs of children, youth and their families living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and Complex Developmental Behavioural Conditions.

Key Message:

We believe that children and families thrive best in a strengths-based environment. Families are at the centre of services and supports are collaborative, culturally sensitive, individualized and flexible. We are trauma-informed and attachment based.

What we do:

Services are available to children from birth to 18 years of age and their families. Children and youth who are referred have a diagnosis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) or a Complex Development and Behavioural Condition (CDBC), or are in the process of receiving one. Services are provided on and off site.

We focus on strengthening families and promoting healthy child/youth development. Our approach is based on the recognition of FASD/CDBC as a brain-based physical (invisible) disability with behavioural symptoms. We believe we need to accommodate and support people with FASD/CDBC as we do with any other physical disability.

    You can expect:

    • Assessment of your child’s needs.
    • An understanding of your child’s strengths and how to build on them.

    • An understanding of your child’s needs and how to effectively support them for success.

    • Individualized and family-centred planning for your child.

    • Support, education and skills development on a wide range of topics that affect families raising a child with FASD/CDBC.

    • Support and access to other community resources and services.

    • Interventions that help to strengthen families, increase resilience to adversity and stress, and promote healthy child development.

    • Training and education about FASD and CDBC.

    • Transition planning for your child’s future.
