Fetal Alcohol Resource Program of Citizen Advocacy (FARP)
We are a non-profit, charitable program that offers ongoing education, support services and research related to improving the overall mental and physical health; and day to day functioning of children, youth and adults affected by FASD. FARP also offers support and care to the families and caregivers of those impacted by FASD, by facilitation of parent-to-parent connections, offering support groups and one to one care. In collaboration with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), we help our clients and their families to develop a support plan based on individual strengths and needs and a plan that is informed by the client and their family’s vision, goals and concerns. Community/Service Navigation and Advocacy are key goals of the program. People living with FASD are supported so that they can live an inclusive life, which leads to better outcomes for their mental and physical health. If a person and/or their caregiver suspects that FASD might be the issue, the team supports connections to diagnostic services (as available) and provides information to the client and their caregivers (with client consent) post-diagnosis. The team works with the family, service providers and educators supporting the child/youth-aged client to build capacity and identify strategies to meet the child/youth’s needs in the family, school and community. We provide information about behavioral symptoms associated with FASD and helpful approaches that often result in more positive interactions and outcomes for the child/youth. Our clients are assigned to a FASD Coordinator who will work directly with the client, the family, service providers, employers and educators to enhance opportunities for positive life outcomes. We work with youth, their family and service providers across sectors to plan for the transition from child and youth services to adult services, if required. Although the main client population is children and youth, we help adults connect to the support programs and services that will help them to reach their individual potential. Services are offered in both Official Languages.
