Families and FASD

Families

Parenting has been called the toughest but most fulfilling job in the world. Parenting children with special needs, such as fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), brings its own set of challenges.

Many parents of children with an FASD are adoptive or foster parents. Some knew about FASD when they welcomed their children into their family, while others did not. In any case, information is the key to success in raising children with an FASD.

Learning about FASD can help parents understand how their child are affected, which parenting strategies work best, and how to get services and support. For people who want to adopt or foster a child with FASD, knowing the facts can help them make an informed decision.
