Lutherwood, in partnership with the Waterloo Region FASD Diagnostic Steering Committee and the Waterloo Region FASD Action Group, as launched a new website with helpful information about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and services available in Waterloo Region.
Located at www.fasdwaterlooregion.ca, this site offers strategies, tips and community supports for families. Included are resources for educators and other professionals that can be used when supporting children and youth diagnosed under FASD.
This site was made possible through a grant from the Ministry of Child and Youth Services.
"I was in a cycle. I would be okay, then would struggle, then would crash and self-harm. Lutherwood had people there for me, always helping me. Instead of turning to self-harm, I learned to sit in my anxiety and feel it, to build awareness and resilience. Now, I am more confident and I know what I want in life. I miss the incredible staff there."
