8 Magic Keys - Video

Watch an animated educational video, developed by Anchorage School District, called “8 Magic Keys.” Strategies are described by Deb Evensen and Jan Lutke, two highly respected experts in the field. The goal was to provide basic information as well as to demonstrate strategies that support students with FASD. This video addresses elementary, secondary school situations as well as family situations. It is helpful for parents and educators to understand what a child with FASD experiences on a daily basis in a variety of situations.
