Foetal Alcohol Spectrum DisorderFamilies with children affected by Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder share how this disability impacts on their lives.

Justice for FASD - Being an adolescent male can be hard. But add to that an invisible disability affecting how you learn, how you think and how you behave… it can soon become a nightmare. Daniel and Jakob are two teenagers coming to terms with a surprisingly common, yet largely misunderstood disability - Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. 

ReMoved - This award winning video should be watched by all.  It captures the traumatic experience of a child prior to and during foster care placement and is unique because the story is told through the child’s eyes.  It is challenging and emotive.  I ask you to imagine how it might be experienced by a child living with a FASD.  In a week when proposals were put forward to incarcerate and restrain women who experience high risk drinking in pregnancy, it gave me pause for thought on the women who self-medicate on alcohol, given they have had similar life experiences. Vicki Russell.
