New FASD classroom for students Grades 8 - 12

New FASD classroom for students Grades 8 - 12

We are very pleased to announce that Carizon and the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) will be providing the community with a FASD classroom for students grades 8-12 beginning in the 2015-16 school year.

The program name is Temenos.* Temenos will provide a specialized classroom environment designed to meet the needs of youth living with FASD. It will be uniquely equipped and structured to meet the social/emotional, sensory and learning needs of the youth in the program.

The classroom will be designed based on the successful FASD classroom (The Fort) which has been in operation for the past two years by the Waterloo Region District School Board and Carizon.

A multi-professional team will support the youth and their families through various aspects of the program; including a teacher, child and youth workers, and a child and family therapist and an occupational therapist.

The program will start in the fall with a group of pre-selected students from our local school boards. In the future, referrals for this program will be accepted through Front Door. We will keep you informed as these details emerge.

*Temenos – sacred enclosure or precinct
