Jared Froese is a Registered Psychologist based out of Red Deer, Alberta who has been providing wide-ranging supports to schools for the last 15 years. In addition to the work Jared completes within the schools he directly contracts with, he is also a member of the diagnostic team with the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Network in Central Alberta that completes multi-disciplinary assessments with both children and adults. As well, Jared has extensive experience working with individuals impacted directly or indirectly by domestic violence. Finally, Jared, whose parents are two now-retired schoolteachers, loves providing educational opportunities for those in a variety of settings, on a variety of topics, as he is a strong believer that when we understand the needs of a child, we are able to far more effectively provide the types of environmental supports and opportunities that allow for optimal growth and development. This relates to specific issues related to cognitive and/or academic development, as well as the manner in which we as parents and/or teachers have an opportunity to promote the determination and grit that all children benefit from in all areas of their life
