Promoting Positive Outcomes in Children with FASD and their Families

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
― Benjamin Franklin

A Story of Families Moving Forward in Action

In the words of an FMF Specialist:

Where do I begin to tell this story? I honestly feel that I’ve been inspired and touched by each of the families affected with FASD with whom I’ve worked, and that each family has their own compelling story.

Answering a Call to Action: Progress in FASD Intervention

In 2008, a national task force on FASD in the United States released a report entitled "A Call to Action."  This report highlighted the vital need for action to advance essential services and research on FASD, including work to improve intervention.  Seven years later, this call to action is being answered in many exciting ways.

Thoughts of an FMF Specialist:
