Sep 25, 2018


Welcome to Fountain of Hope's page on Miss Sally's Stimulating Environment - an innovative initiative designed to provide a nurturing and enriching space for children and adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). At Fountain of Hope, we are passionate about fostering a supportive community for individuals with unique needs, and this program is a testament to our commitment.

The Essence of Miss Sally's Stimulating Environment

Miss Sally's Stimulating Environment is a comprehensive program that aims to create an inclusive and stimulating environment for individuals with FASD. Led by a dedicated team of professionals, our program offers various resources, activities, and events tailored to the unique needs of the FASD community.

Understanding Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a lifelong condition that affects individuals who were exposed to alcohol during pregnancy. It encompasses a range of physical, mental, and behavioral challenges, and each person with FASD has their own strengths and areas of struggle. Fountain of Hope recognizes the importance of providing specialized support to individuals with FASD, and Miss Sally's Stimulating Environment is our way of bridging that gap.

Our Programs and Activities

Miss Sally's Stimulating Environment offers a wide array of programs and activities to cater to the diverse needs and interests of individuals with FASD. Through our carefully curated programs, participants have the opportunity to engage in meaningful experiences that promote growth, learning, and social interaction.

1. Sensory Integration Workshops

Our sensory integration workshops focus on enhancing sensory processing skills and providing a safe and regulated environment where individuals with FASD can explore different textures, sounds, and movements. These workshops are designed to promote sensory regulation and improve overall sensory integration abilities.

2. Social Skills Development

We understand the importance of social skills development for individuals with FASD. Our social skills programs incorporate evidence-based strategies to enhance communication, foster positive relationships, and navigate social interactions effectively. Through structured activities and peer support, participants develop confidence and social competence.

3. Therapeutic Arts and Music

Expressive arts therapy has shown remarkable benefits for individuals with FASD. Our therapeutic arts and music programs provide an outlet for self-expression, emotional healing, and personal growth. Participants can explore various art forms and musical activities, enabling them to tap into their creativity in a supportive and understanding environment.

4. Life Skills Training

Preparing individuals with FASD for independent living is a crucial aspect of our program. Life skills training focuses on building essential skills such as personal hygiene, household management, money management, and more. Our dedicated team, equipped with expertise in FASD, offers customized training modules to empower individuals and enhance their self-reliance.

Events and Workshops

In addition to ongoing programs, Fountain of Hope organizes regular events and workshops that facilitate community engagement and knowledge sharing. We host educational seminars, guest lectures, and awareness campaigns to promote a better understanding of FASD within the broader community.

Bringing Hope to Families

FASD not only affects individuals but also their families and caregivers. At Fountain of Hope, we strive to offer support and resources for families navigating the challenges associated with FASD. Through our comprehensive approach, we create a sense of community and provide a strong support network for families, ensuring that they feel heard, understood, and equipped with the necessary tools to advocate for their loved ones.
