If you’re a parent or caregiver to an individual with Fetal Alcohol and you’re struggling, things can start getting better and soon.
It’s almost time for my free once-a-year Caregiver Kick Start Workshop. This workshop is designed to give you a better understanding of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorder, so you can have better days at home, and get those around you who don’t understand FASD on board.
Gain the confidence through this workshop to go into meetings prepared to get others to understand your loved one’s challenges with FASD so that you can get the resources necessary for them to succeed in every area of life.
This workshop is delivered once a year to help parents and caregivers get a deeper understanding of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder so that you can have better days at home and have confident conversations with others about FASD.
