Common FASD Messaging
by CAN FASD Research Network

This document is a great reference point for all of us to draw information from. Coordinated messages are important for our clients

The purpose of this document is to assist those writing and talking about people with FASD or the issues related to the disability to use the same statistics, framing of topics, and language. The outcome over time will be an improved understanding by the reader/listener with consistently using these suggestions. This is a living document and areas will be updates as it is informed by the research.

Two exciting opportunities to take part in over the next couple months. Check them out below!
