About our research projects
Evaluating family support for children with FASD or an "At Risk" designation
We are conducting a study looking at models for supporting families and children with a diagnosis of FASD or an "At Risk" designation. We have begun recruitment and hope to complete the study by 2025. The goal of the family support process is to enhance children's capacity for self regulation.

A partnership between CAAC, ITalk studios and Dr Carmen Cubillo (Healing Circle Psychology) has created a series of video animations that address the three key threads of the PuP framework. We are currently carrying out qualitative research to learn how the animations are being received by parents and practitioners.
