A big thank you to Suzanne Tofte Heacock for allowing us to share her great visual that was first uploaded to the "Shifting the paradigm: towards a neuro-behavioral approach to FASD" FB support group. It illustrates the light bulb analogy so brilliantly!

Stay Strong and Healthy Pregnancy Campaign for Aboriginal women and their partners and family. Four separate videos aimed at women, men, young people and health professionals discussing alcohol and pregnancy. Click here to link to the resources on Your Room.
The following two videos are from Attitude Pictures, a New Zealand based media company that makes documentaries for and about people who live with disabilities and chronic health conditions:
- Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder - Families 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.
