The printed materials and training DVD offered by FASCETS are based on research, clinical work, and personal experiences. They have been developed to provide current, useful, understandable information for parents, professionals and people with FASD, and to support collaboration among families, professionals, agencies and organizations.

The following materials support development of a common language for talking about behaviors differently, so that parents, psychologists, educators and family members are all "on the same page." This information increases understanding, reduces frustration, and supports development of different and more effective strategies.
