September 9th is International FASD Day
What is this about?
In your hallway, classroom, or school there may be a student with FASD. You may not know it, as FASD is largely an invisible disability. POPFASD encourages you to wear red shoes on September 9th to raise awareness of FASD.
What is FASD?
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a disability that affects the brain and body of indivicudals who were prenatally exposed to alcohol. It is a lifelong disability. Each person is unique and has strengths and challenges. Providing appropriate, respectful supports will help individuals reach their full potential.
