The Lethbridge Herald recently published an article titled “Women help guide FASD clients in judicial system” highlighting the work of two Lethbridge Regional Police workers (and a therapy dog!) in their efforts to help individuals with FASD navigate the justice system and to help the justice system understand FASD.

Adult FASD Justice Program Co-ordinator Sabrina Hacker and Youth FASD Justice Program Co-ordinator Roberta Smallbones act as advocates for individuals with FASD and as a source of reliable information about FASD for justice professionals. As for the dog: he provides a calming presence, relieving stress and anxiety for clients.

Read the article to learn more about the work being done by these individuals in Lethbridge.
