Success is a Spectrum: FASD and Adoptions in British Columbia (DVD)

(Gulf Islands Film & Television School and Walking Feet Video Productions, Whitecrow Village FASD Society, 2008)

Commissioned by the British Columbia Ministry of Children and Family Development, the Whitecrow Village Film Crew filmed and produced an update to an earlier MCFD film on adoption and FASD. The original video, “Redefining Success,” was filmed in 1999 – 2000, and features our own Kee Warner, Daniel Warner, and Kirk Lutke. The updated sequel, “Success is a Spectrum,” showcases the stories of adults and adolescents with FASD who have been adopted and their adoptive families. The new video features various members from the Whitecrow Village community and was released in the summer of 2008.

FASD Educational Video for Classroom Teachers

Whitecrow Village Walking Feet Productions is working to film and produce an educational video for classroom teachers and other educators who have a professional interest in FASD. The video will explore the disability from the perspective of students with FASD and will challenge educators to examine and re-examine their classroom practices – leading them to discover valuable principles by which effective teaching strategies for individual students with FASD can be designed. Content will include basic information about FASD and the brain, and will provide a clear demonstration of the positive outcomes that are possible for teacher, student and classmates.

Another project in the works – Whitecrow Village FASD Intensive Workshop

This video is being produced in response to the many requests we receive for an introduction to the Whitecrow Village model of success, hope, understanding and capacity.
