FASD Fact 50: People with FASDs want you to know…

Text: People with an FASD want you to know…

“We are capable and able to do anything with the right support in our lives!”

“Just because I’m disabled doesn’t mean I can’t do stuff!”

“I’m not immature…I have an FASD.”

“It helps when people understand – like, really understand.”

“I’m not trying to misbehave.”

Please change your vocabulary of “won’t” to “can’t” when you are discussing my condition with anyone.”

Diagnosis was a relief. I learned I wasn’t the problem…I HAD a problem.
