Break it down! Board

Break it Down!

The FASD Break it Down board is a visual tool to help people with FASD work through good and not-so-good situations, to help them identify different strategies and strengths that can help them. The idea came from Susan, a mum whose child found it hard to explain what happened at school leading to dysregulation at home. The name came from Nyrene, a member of the Adults and Young Adults with FASD Advisory Committee, who encourages others to “break it down” when things are overwhelming or hard to understand.

The Break it Down board was reviewed by experts and developed in cooperation with as part of National FASD’s partnership with Seashell, funded by the DHSC. It is part of the “Me and My FASD Toolkit.”
