Parents of children with FASDs aren't given a roadmap when starting out - not to mention as they navigate parenting and guidance through adulthood! Many people with FASDs need supports throughout their adult lives, but have a natural desire for independence, self-determination, and adult relationships. For those of us parenting our young adults and adults with FASD this can feel like a balancing act.
This webinar will feature a panel of parents who are weathering the adult years to help children who may (or may not!) need more support than their same-age peers. We will be sharing what has worked to help our adult children succeed as they go through life.
