FASD Awarness Day
The Perils of FASD
“Right now, we are dealing with my 14-year-old having to do community service because she basically got ALL F’S and 2 D’S for the WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR.
It appeared to me that no one but me and my child seemed to know how to deal with her. It got to the point that my daughter went to school when she felt like going to school and no one seemed to care. Now she has to repeat 9th grade. I understand why but when we were having all these meetings (IEP) and when I was all but begging for help why wasn’t someone catching it earlier. I don’t understand it.”
