The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), in collaboration with the Universities of Victoria and Saskatchewan, and Queen’s University are conducting a study entitled “Strength-Based Interventions for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders” . This investigation is based on the success of a previous study, now in the final stages of completion, which evaluated a strength-based motor skill program for children diagnosed with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
Their new study will incorporate the motor skill activities program, FAST Club along with an additional intervention, BrainGamers. Preliminary research results from the initial study indicate that participants showed some positive gains in both motor skills and some aspects of cognitive functioning upon completion of the program. What makes their interventions unique is that there is a focus on the existing strengths of the child, and then these strengths are developed to the fullest.
