Given physical distancing measures currently in place, we must move some of our supports online. Our monthly parent and caregiver support group set to launch in St. John's in April will now be held virtually as a Zoom video meeting.
Please join our group facilitators as we chat about coping and strategies for living with FASD that are especially important during this unsettling time.
This meeting is open to parents and caregivers across the province and will replace our regularly scheduled Virtual Support Group (originally scheduled for April 8).
If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Zoom meeting information and directions for how to join will be circulated to those who RSVP.
