The Pas and Area FASD Committee is running a conference called “How Attachment Shapes Our Lives”.
Occupational therapist Kim Barthel will be speaking at the conference and she says attachment is all about early childhood relationships between parents and teachers and how these relationships help to develop the brain.
These relationships can be tricky for children with developmental challenges and the conference centre’s around how adults can help or advance their children development.
The Conference will take place in The Pas on October 5th at the Royal Canadian Legion from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. To register for the conference call 204-623-9649 the deadline to register is September 15th.
Correction: An Earlier Version of this Story said the conference was being run by the FASD Diagnostic Coordinator Joanne Wyman. It is actually being run by The Pas and Area FASD Committee
