FASD Fact #35: Seeing FASD as “just” a behavioral problem prevents appropriate supports

Text: FASD Fact #35:
The myth that FASD is “just” a behavioral problem prevents people with FASD from receiving proper care.

FASD is a lifelong neurobehavioral and neurodevelopmental disability. Behavioral differences are SYMPTOMS of brain differences. As such, it should qualify a person for the same supports and services that other people with developmental disabilities get: supported housing, supported employment, supported living, and financial support.
