I’m am an adult with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. That simply means that I was exposed to alcohol in utero. It is a birth defect that significantly affects the processing of the brain. My eyes, my auditory, my senses, my learning abilities were all affected! It is a huge part of my day, but I am a survivor and I have learned to LIVE with FASD. There is a lot of negative out there about those of us who have this BIRTH DEFECT. My goal is to help those who are behind me and hopefully we can get this in the DSMV and get on IEP’s in schools and kids can get the proper diagnosis and the helps that they need. We need the medical field to educate future moms to the dangers of drinking while pregnant and if breast feeding.
I was also recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, too. So, this is truly the Spectrum zone.
