What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the term used to describe the lifelong physical and/or neurodevelopmental impairments that can result from fetal alcohol exposure. FASD is a condition that is an outcome of parents either not being aware of the dangers of alcohol use when pregnant or planning a pregnancy, or not being supported to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.

At a certain age, a person living with FASD realizes it-
the feeling that we are different.
The world starts to tell us we are wrong -
the stigma that comes from being different.
So, we are dealing with the feeling that people judge us, unfairly.

It's not easy.

People with #FASD have a right to be heard.
The choice is what society does with these truths.
