FASD Lane is a place for adults with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS),  Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE), or any of the disorders defined as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).   A diagnosis is not required to be part of this group, just a reasonable suspicion that symptoms may be caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol.

Club COSTA - Circle of Support for Teens and Adults with FASD.

If you'd like to start your own local group, here is how we did it:


Forum: A message forum has been set up with interesting discussions and some fun and games too! FASDland Forum

Mail List for Individuals with FASD: An online support group mail list has been set up for group sharing and discussion of FASD issues.  Information on subscribing is here:  http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/FASDLane/

Mail List for Parents of Older Teens and Adults:  An online support group for parents only to discuss issues related to helping their older teens and adult children to thrive in a safe and healthy environment:  http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Olderfas

Workbook: "So You Have Been Diagnosed With FASD: Now What?" This 126 page pdf handbook of hopeful strategies for youth and young adults can be downloaded for free: http://www.bsec.ab.ca/pdf/fasd.pdf

Circle of Support: A fun paper folding activity that has guidelines on how to be happy living with FASD.  In order to be happy, you have to be healthy and safe.  If you get injured or fired, or evicted or arrested, you will not be happy or free.  So these guidelines help you to stay safe and healthy and happy.
