FASD Fact #13: Change the environment (not the person) for best success


FACT #13: When a person has a disability, we change their environment to help them succeed.
This is true for people with FASDs as well.

“Environment” can be sensory: what you can see, smell, touch, hear, and taste.

“Environment” can be more abstract, such as expectations, systems, traditions, values, and culture.

Instead of making the person with an FASD fit the environment, we need to change the environment to fit the person with an FASD.
