Joy, competency, and social success are among the descriptors of children and adolescents with FASD and their families who participate in Whitecrow Village programs. The Whitecrow model consistently yields experiences of belonging for children and their families who have often experienced marginalization or isolation in other settings.
Whitecrow activities are based on a unique approach to understanding and supporting people with FASD. Essentially we take research findings of FASD as a physical disorder and translate them into practice. Reducing failure due to primary disabilities can also reduce the manifestation of secondary behavioural characteristics. Most importantly, providing an environment of understanding, respect and relationship allows the strengths and gifts of people with FASD to be their most notable quality.
