What is FASD?

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

FASD is a lifelong disability that affects the brain and body of people who were exposed to alcohol in the womb. Each person with FASD has both strengths and challenges and will need special supports to help them succeed with many different parts of their daily lives. About 4% of Canadians are believed to have FASD
