“September is Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder awareness month, and the people at the Central Alberta FASD Network want to get the word out there about how to avoid the most preventable known disability.
While the symptoms can vary, less than 10% of people who have FASD display physical symptoms, which can make it tough to diagnose, and there is no cure or form of treatment besides support.
Affecting more than 1.5 million Canadians, FASD affects more people than those with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Down syndrome combined, but even with these high numbers, FASD continues to be largely misunderstood by the general public.”

To help shine a spotlight on this disability and the support options available, the Central Alberta FASD Network will be providing helpful information live on their Facebook page all month long.
