Understanding Concepts and Learning New Skills

By: Helpful Resource

2.0 1 review

Children with FASD have difficulty understanding concepts, learning new skills or facts and remembering what was previously learned.

Useful strategies are:

Divide requests or instructions into small pieces of information; for example, provide details on what is first and what needs to be done next etc.
Use visual aids, e.g. photos, cartoons etc.
When assisting a person with FASD, you need to be organized to help the activity or lesson go as smoothly as possible and ensure breaks are provide in between learning sessions.
