FASD Hope is a podcast about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), from the lens of parent advocates with over eighteen years of lived experience.
June is FASD Book Month at FASD Hope! FASD Hope celebrates it's 60th episode by featuring FASCETS and the Executive Director of FASCETS, Nathalie Brassard. FASCETS was developed as an extension of the GROUND BREAKING book about FASD, which was first published in 1997, "Trying Differently Rather Than Harder: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders" by Diane Malbin, MSW. The "Trying Differently Rather Than Harder" book is considered the sentinel and go-to book about FASD. It is often the book that podcast host, Natalie Vecchione, recommends to ANYONE wanting to learn about FASD.
In this enlightening episode, Nathalie and Natalie discuss the following topics: the history of FASCETS and the "Trying Differently Rather Than Harder" book, how FASCETS has grown in it's 24 years. the growth of FASCETS online training (especially since the COVID19 Pandemic), trainings updates and how FASCETS and FASD Hope will be partnering to bring "FASCETS Fridays" episodes in the near future.
