By the Family Support Institute of BC (FSI) and University of Calgary
This toolkit was developed as part of a project sponsored by Kids Brain Health Network. The goal of the project was to improve the experience of families seeking services for their children with neurodevelopmental differences (NDDs), including children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, as well as other conditions. The development of the toolkit reflected Interviews with parents in which they said that it would be helpful if those supporting them and their child had more understanding about the child’s condition and the challenges families face when seeking services. They also wanted these support workers, including navigators, to be aware of strategies to address these challenges. This toolkit has been designed to address these issues.
