Applications open, limited spaces, sign up now!
NOFASD is pleased to be continuing our successful online FASD Support Group program in 2023 and is now calling for applications from those interested in participating in our next group which will commence in mid-February.
If you are a parent or caregiver living in Australia, supporting someone with either diagnosed or suspected Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and you’re keen to increase your knowledge and understanding of FASD while connecting with others who understand the challenges you face, you will find participation in a support group worthwhile.
The seven meetings in the Support Group program are delivered once a week online using the Zoom platform. There is no charge to participate, but there are limited places in each support group to enable all participants to contribute to group discussions, so if you are keen to participate, please contact us now to express your interest in joining this group.
Comments from participants in our previous support groups confirm the value to be gained from participating – both in terms of developing a support network and increasing your knowledge about this disability and useful strategies to assist in improving outcomes.
“Gives a little peace knowing I’m not alone and am on the right track. Being the calm advocate is a tough gig!”
“I valued highly the information and understanding and others’ examples of their children – I felt “me too” moments!”
“Being in a group of people who understand – and the facilitator having lived experience and a positive, but realistic approach. Access to information and resources in a structured way.”
“I found the facilitator’s lived experience to be very insightful.”
