I think most of us thought as soon as people hear and know what it (FASD) really was, they would just automatically accommodate the kids and understand that this has nothing to do with them – their fault or their mother’s fault – that it is a brain condition.
Judy and her son, Matthew (who is now 42 years old), recently created a poster: Reminders for Parents/Caregivers and People with FASD and other Neuro Development Disabilities. We are going to review it for you, step by step. Interspersed with expanding on those best tips for caregivers, she shares:
Judy and I also touch on the landscape of FASD – how it has changed, what remains the same, and what has to change. When I asked her if she gets sad at all that needs to be done, her response was: “I can’t afford to be sad, so I’m fueled.” I think you will be fueled by Judy’s spirit, passion, and knowledge.
