What is FASD?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition with lifelong cognitive, emotional and behavioural challenges. In addition to effects on the brain, FASD is a full-body diagnosis that can include more than 400 known conditions.
The National Organisation for FASD has lots of handy resources on its website, including how to spot FASD and getting a diagnosis.
FASD and Me
The Me & My FASD website is for young people with FASD.
It has information about FASD and things that can help.
It was created in the UK working with a very experienced team including medical professionals, teachers, parents and most importantly an advisory team of adults and young people with FASD.
#Drymester exists to inspire and support you to go alcohol-free when pregnant or planning a pregnancy. There's lots of different advice out there.
Their message is simple and based on the facts – when it comes to alcohol, there's no safe time and no safe amount to drink during pregnancy.
