International FASD Awareness Day is set aside each year to increase knowledge and understanding about FASD. This year, the FASD Network is holding an FASD Questions and Answers panel in Saskatoon.
Thursday, September 6th

This free-of-charge event is great for anyone who wants to learn strategies for supporting someone with FASD. The panel will consist of caregivers and individuals with FASD so come learn from their years of lived experiences, get answers and advice from the true experts in the world of FASD.
Submit your questions when you register or ask them live at the event. This is a great chance to learn more about FASD, ask advice for specific situations, and listen to discussions about the strategies and supports that worked for our panelists.
