FASD Awareness Day
International FASD Awareness Day is about increasing knowledge of the risks associated with drinking alcohol during pregnancy and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder which is a preventable neurodevelopmental disability.
The Alcohol and Pregnancy & FASD team at Telethon Kids Institute has been partnering with communities and families in Western Australia to develop prevention strategies to help reduce the number of women drinking alcohol during pregnancy. We are also working to provide information to help people understand the impact of FASD over a person's life.
To raise awareness in the Pilbara region of Western Australia new videos have been produced for FASD Awareness Day
We also have a series of new videos featuring children living with FASD and their families, and how FASD is impacting on communities. These videos were released in August 2017
