FASD Support Network on the Web

Physical support groups are often not an option for many families. However we have found that you can get the same kind of validation, understanding and good information from other parents through joining one of the many support networks on the web. FASResource is an amazing group of birth, adoptive and foster caretakers. They offer compassion, insight and valuable positive interventions from years of experience.
