The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration, but it can also be a challenging time for caregivers of individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and for individuals with FASD themselves. FASD is a lifelong disability that is caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol and can impact an individual’s cognitive, behavioral, and physical development. The holiday season can be overwhelming for anyone, but for those with FASD, the added sensory stimuli and changes in routine can be especially difficult to manage. As a caregiver, it is important to have strategies in place to support your loved one with FASD during the holiday season. Calgary Fetal Alcohol Network (CFAN) has some practical strategies and tips for caregivers and individuals with FASD to navigate the holidays with greater ease and enjoyment.
