The FASD & Me: Strengthening My Community Program
Description: Adopt4Life supports hundreds of families within our community as they navigate the many paths to accurate diagnosis and long-term success strategies for their children living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
We created the bilingual FASD & Me program to celebrate children and youth with FASD and their families and enable members of their communities to better understand both their strengths and needs. The program provides current facts about FASD, a disorder affecting an estimated 4% of Canadians, and serves to dispel harmful myths and stereotypes. The FASD & Me resources have become valuable tools in Ontario’s FASD community, frequently distributed by many FASD diagnostic clinics, provincial FASD Workers, support group leaders, and front-line workers to their clients.
