Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders or FASD is an invisible disorder impacting 1 in 20 U.S. children. It is more prevalent than autism, down syndrome, or spina bifida. However, awareness and resources continue to be notably less available. FASD is a developmental disorder with life-long implications. Early identification and correct diagnosis offer more successful outcomes when paired with appropriate strategies and accommodations.
Texas FASD Network was formed to expand FASD support, awareness, and advocacy across the state of Texas. Our efforts include meeting with legislators to pass the FASD Respect Act, educating healthcare professionals and educators about FASD, and hosting caregiver-led support groups. We have trained over 2,000 people in the past three years. Texas FASD Network is the state affiliate for FASD United, the national organization for FASD.
Fundraising with North Texas Giving Day allows Texas FASD Network to continue serving local and regional communities in Texas, supporting families and individuals with FASD, and educating others. Your donations make a difference!
