Providing An Alternative Paradigm for Understanding Behaviors

FASCETS is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization established October 1997

Services available through FASCETS are designed to increase understanding, build on strengths, expand options for developing effective parenting and professional techniques, enhance existing programs and support the development of new programs. Short term goals include increased effectiveness, reduced frustration, and attainment of improved outcomes, including burnout prevention in professionals. The long term goal of this work is to contribute to the prevention of FASD.

FASCETS supports the development of a family-centered, community-based, multidisciplinary continuum of care. This collaborative design has been found to be effective in enhancing communication among parents and professionals for their mutual benefit.
