Claire has experience in the labour market and has written a small booklet titled “FASD in the New Zealand Workplace” which will be of interest, and is very relevant, to Australian readers who are responding to the challenges of FASD in many settings. This book is downloadable by clicking on this link  FASD in the Workplace

The second resource from Claire Gyde, Chairperson of FASD-Can New Zealand will be invaluable to any reader who seeks to understand FASD better and be FASD-informed. The book, named “The Perfect Love Story” is witty, wise and truly FASD-informed. Claire skilfully documents her family’s journey and teaches readers along the way. The book will be particularly helpful for parents, carers, and direct service providers. However, for anyone with a professional or clinical interest in FASD this book is also illuminating. This book is not able to be downloaded but will be posted on request in print form. It is free to parents, carers and direct service providers - others who wish to purchase are requested to make a donation to NOFASD Australia.
