Learn More About FASD & Join Support Groups

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an important, often unrecognized issue that is preventable. The Hawaii FASD Action group says, “FASD encompasses a range of effects on the brain and body of individuals prenatally exposed to alcohol. FASD is a lifelong disability. Individuals affected by FASD display various challenges in their daily living and are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. FASD-informed education and interventions are critical for individuals and their families. With full support and education, individuals with an FASD will achieve their full potential and lead productive lives.”
