Hello, my name is rachel and i am the parent of a child with FASD. She was diagnosed 2 years ago while living with her grandparents. Despite the diagnosis, little information was shared with me about her disability, behavior issues, troubles with school and so on. When she was returend to me I recieved papers saying she had a cognative brain development issue, a phonlogical development issue and FASD. The previous caregivers, despite getting this diagnosis did very little in terms of helping her manage her disability and as I result I know very little about what trouble she is having or what issues may arrise.
At this point I am eager to learn about how I can help her and will keep this message up to date with questions tha may arrise and look forward to your feed back.
