The Fort Meets the Needs of Kids Living with FASD
Operated in partnership with the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB), The Fort is a program for students ages 8-12 with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) diagnosis. We are very pleased to share that as a result of a successful two-year pilot project, Carizon and the WRDSB are moving forward and will provide The Fort program to the community on an ongoing basis.
“I am thrilled,” says a parent of a Fort Student, “that (my child) is receiving the care and supervision he needs and is staying in school, developing positive relationships and is fully engaged in his education.”
