Facebook Caregiver Support Groups

Parenting FASD Kids and Parenting FASD Teens and Adults are places to share what works with persons affected by an FASD. A place where struggling caregivers can come and get ideas, tips, support, etc. Nothing is concrete for each individual person, but what worked for some of us, might help you.

Our goal is to raise kids who are effected by FASD to be successful adults, and for parent warriors to stay sane in the midst of trauma. We are here to share our experiences with you. Take what fits your situation and use it. We hope to bless your family! Our groups are ONLY FOR CAREGIVERS of persons with FASD. Thank you all for respecting that. Ann Yurcek and Terri Quinn
