New FASD Program at SPEC
SPEC is pleased to announce a new program partnership with The South East Alberta FASD Network Society (SEAFAN)
This program will have a regional outreach worker who will support individuals with FASD to navigate the systems that will provide long-term support. The focus of this program will be to provide support or help build connections with FASD individuals across the lifespan with the focus being on teens as they transition to adulthood, and adults that may not have other supports.
“This outreach position is in response to a recognized gap in service in our local area” states Amanda Goodnough, Executive Director, “we are thrilled that SEAFAN has chosen SPEC to offer specialized supports for those who are experiencing barriers to access needed supports, regardless of if they have a formal FASD diagnosis or not”.
SPEC is excited to continue working with existing local and regional FASD programs, in addition to providing much needed rural support. This new program will be delivered throughout SEAFAN’s catchment area that includes Cypress County, Medicine Hat, Redcliff, County of Forty Mile, Bow Island, Foremost, Newell County, Brooks, Bassano, Acadia District, Empress, Special Areas 2,3,4, Oyen and Duchess.
