Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder matters. We educate, network, & share resources - to improve the lives of individuals, families and communities across Newfoundland and Labrador. The fasdNL Network was officially formed in December 2012. For several years prior to the formation of the fasdNL Network we, as a group of individuals, came together due to a shared interest in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) as a Provincial FASD Committee. Some of us have done work in our respective fields with individuals and/or families affected by FASD; others are caring for children affected by FASD. We all share a common interest in this topic and in supporting people throughout the area in which we serve.
By promoting accurate and credible information, the NL FASD Committee is focused on increasing the awareness of FASD and related issues among individuals, families and communities. The Committee believes that such awareness efforts will assist in the prevention of FASD as well as to increase support and functioning for those affected by FASD. fasdNL Network gratefully acknowledges the Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development and the Newfoundland Liquor Corporation (NLC) for their funding and donations.
