Strategies to address symptoms and manage daily life.
FASD impacts each adult with an FASD differently, but it continues to impact the brain and present challenges throughout the lifetime. Individuals can not outgrow FASD, but they can use strategies to address their symptoms and manage their daily life.
Ability versus disability
Adults with an FASD often require support to reach their full potential. It is important to recognize one’s strengths and build supports around ability versus disability. Adults with an FASD can be incredible attributes to the community in which they live. A critical part of being a successful adult with an FASD is to become an excellent self-advocate and ask for help when needed.
