September is FASD Awareness Month



Let’s celebrate what people with FASD have taught us all. It can be something big or small.

At National FASD we know how amazing each and every person with FASD actually is.

We learn from them every day and they help to  guide our work.

We know the importance of listening to those with lived experience and therefore we have an Adults and Young Adults with FASD Advisory Committee.  

One of our adult committee members came up with one of the most amazing ideas which led to us creating a fabulous game. It’s called The Misunderstoods: Living FASD, and the name was also chosen by the committee! The game is a fun way for a young person to work with an adult to explore different aspects of living with FASD. You can find the game here.  They helped with everything that is on our Me and My FASD website.

We talked to the committee about what they would like to see on the website and one answer was ‘Merch!!’.

So, we listened and introduced merchandise into our online shop which includes mugs, T shirts and loads more- why don’t you take a look! 


What can you do?


We would love to hear from you. 

Please share what you have learnt from a person with FASD!

There are two graphics below. One has been left blank for you to print out, fill out by hand, and share in a photo, the other is designed to be shared with a social media post about what you’ve learned from someone with FASD. 

Right click on the one you’d prefer to use, and share however you’d like! Make sure to tag us @NationalFASD 


As you can see listening and learning from people with FASD is at the very heart of what we do. We know that so many parents and professionals have learnt very valuable lessons from people with FASD too. We are curious about what you have learnt from a person with FASD. To start us off we thought we’d take an international approach and whilst at the EUFASD conference in Norway, our Director of Innovation, Joanna Buckard, asked some international FASD experts what they too have learnt from a person with FASD.
