Housing insecurity is a serious issue for most people with special needs, but finding appropriate and supportive housing for adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is even harder to come by. Never Fear! In this episode Jeff interviews someone who is doing something about it.
Meet Gigi Davidson. Gigi is the Founder of FASD Communities and she is going to share her story as an FASD Caregiver to a young man and how she started up a one-of-a-kind, long-term residential care home for individuals with FASD.
Watch out! In this episode Jeff interviews his first guest and he's not joking around! Meet Audrey McFarlane. Audrey is the Executive Director for The Canada FASD Network. If you have ever thought to yourself, "what the heck does CanFASD even really do?" then you are in for a treat.
Listen in as Jeff and Audrey get right down to business and find out what CANFASD is up to these days and how they are burning the midnight oil on all things FASD.
Plus -- they will talk about the new FASD definition and do some serious busting... MYTH BUSTING, that is!
