#077 The importance of an FASD community

fasd success show Aug 22, 2021

Today’s episode is a little different. You may know about our free Facebook group called the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Caregiver Success Support Group. Well, a group is only as successful as it is because of the moderators. They provide support for group members and maintain a safe atmosphere.

I thought it might be fun for listeners to “meet the mods” and hear a little bit about them, their families, and their thoughts on the importance of community.

We have four moderators: Laurie Anderson, Alex Duthie, Heather Flynn and Debbie Raymond.

As with all guests, I ask about their origin story. You will also find out:

  • who they support;
  • some of the symptoms of the disability that present in their loved ones; and
  • interventions or accommodations they use to support their success.

You will also learn (if you didn’t already know):

  • What role they play in the group;
  • The skills they bring as a moderator; and
  • Their thoughts on the importance of belonging to this group as an FASD caregiver.

These four volunteer their time to keep our group a safe and supportive place. Not only do they give their time, but they also give advice, provide resources and support. I could not be as successful as I am without their help.

I hope you enjoy getting to know them a little bit more.
