Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome affects 1 in every 100 children born in the United States each year.  My child is 1 of many living with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.  Below are links to a 3 part series I wrote on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.  If your family has been touched by FAS please don’t hesitate to reach out and contact me.  I’d love to connect with others that know what this is like.

FASD Forever

While Fetal Alcohol Syndrome can be very overwhelming and can create many life long challenges there is hope! The brain damage caused alcohol exposure is permanent but there are still many interventions and therapies that can help. Medications, behavior modification, therapy, and social supports can improve the quality of life for individuals with an FASD. FASD is a diagnosis it does not have to define you or your child. I happen to live with one of the most amazing young men in the world and he just happens to have an FASD.
