The more our legislators know about how FASD has impacted you the more willing they are to vote for legislation.

Thank you.

Most people with FASD have no visible signs of prenatal alcohol exposure. Their problems may be wrongly blamed on poor parenting or other disorders. Often adoptive parents are unaware their child may have been prenatally exposed to alcohol but they know that their child struggles with problem solving skills, memory problems, impulsivity, poor judgement and may lack social skills. Your child may be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); yet the root cause may be prenatal alcohol exposure.
