September is FASD awareness month


September 9th is the international day to bring awareness to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). The goal of FASD day is to promote prevention of FASD, provide education regarding the diagnosis and increase capacity to support individuals with FASD. Advocates are dedicating the month of September to raise awareness.

FASD is a brain-based disability. Every Thursday in the month of September, Children’s Community Network will be sharing links that provide information and increase awareness of FASD and how prenatal alcohol exposure impacts brain development. Check back here weekly this month for new links:
