About the Webinar:
NOFASD Australia and the Ministry of Vulnerable Children Oranga Tamariki of New Zealand invite you to a FASD Eyebites Cards Webinar.
This informal conversational webinar with Rose Hawkins and Anne Heath will showcase the FASD Eyebites Cards, a fantastic resource for practitioner, parents or carers working with those who have lived experience of FASD. These unique cards can assist as an everyday tool to support families and service providers in key FASD-informed principles. They are also useful in times of challenge.
After the Webinar the FASD Eyebites cards can be obtained in the following ways:
About your Presenter - Rose Hawkins
Rose Hawkins is the regional disability advisor for the northernmost
region of the New Zealand child protection and youth justice organisation,
Ministry of Vulnerable Children Oranga Tamariki. Rose realised that much of her work is about support for children,
young people and families grappling with the lifelong effects of Fetal Alcohol
Spectrum Disorder (FASD). To address this and raise awareness Rose has
collaborated with Alcohol Healthwatch and the FASD Centre Aotearoa and
developed FASD resources which are “easily digestible” including the FASD
Eyebite Cards. Rose’s health and disability career started in physiotherapy,
working in diverse clinical areas and management positions across the sector.
About your Presenter - Dr Anne Heath CAHRI AFHEA

background in community services (alcohol and drug, youth work, disability,
mental health, homelessness). Anne recognised that hidden FASD often underpins
many challenges across the community sector and has since contributed to
awareness raising and community education across Australia. Anne currently
works as the national educator at NOFASD Australia and as a Lecturer at the
University of Tasmania.
