International Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Awareness Day
Every year on September 9, families, communities, and governments around the world take time to reflect on the dangers of consuming alcohol during pregnancy and the experiences of individuals and families living with FASD.
FASD stands for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. It is a lifelong disability that affects the brain and body of people who were exposed to alcohol in the womb. Each person with FASD has both strengths and challenges and will need special supports to help them succeed with many different parts of their daily lives.
