Growing up is never easy! Hitting the adolescent stage of life is challenging, even for those fortunate to have all the resources at hand. Adolescents living with the neurodisability of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) encounter multiple additional challenges in navigating this stage of life.
This film offers a very personal, thought provoking and intimate eye-opening journey into the lives of four teenagers living with an FASD and their families. The movie accurately documents how these teens are failing in our social support system, which does not provide the knowledge, skills, and resources to guide young people living with an FASD.
The movie, narrated by Dr Ira Chasnoff, an international expert on the psychosocial aspects of living with an FASD, and is a valuable learning tool for professionals and parents.
A short discussion will follow the screening on Skills Input–Sleep Behaviour.
