FASD Awareness Month
Doodle something about FASD, and share it on social media
Today’s Hashtags:#DoodleDay #FASDDoodle #FASDMonthUK
Today is National Doodle Day, created by Epilepsy Action, to support people affected by epilepsy.
Today by doodling something fun, you can help raise awareness about the link between FASD and epilepsy/ seizure disorder.
More research needs to be done about this important area.
Some studies suggest that people with FASD are 10 times more likely to have epilepsy/ seizure disorder than others.
The DHSC FASD Health Needs Assessment recognises this association, and leading experts believe that people with FASD should be screened for seizures.
This is open to anyone! Doodle something that makes you happy, take a picture of it, and then share it on social media, along with something positive about FASD.
Maybe you might like to doodle about:
- Your family life
- Your pet
- Your friend
- Your favourite place
- Your favourite TV character
- A holiday you went on
- Something that helps you feel calm
- Someone who inspires you
- Anything that makes you happy!
Positive things about FASD could be:
- How it helps people see things differently to others
- How creative people with FASD are
- How people learn to manage FASD
- And many more!
