Event details

Our FASD online chat group is for Surrey parent carers of children and young people with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder – with or without a diagnosis.

Joining us this time will be Paula McPhail who will be giving insights into her world of living with FASD. At 23-years-old, Paula is the co-founder of Scottish charity Oshay’s and she is an amazing advocate for those living with FASD. Paula will be discussing the launch of the UK’s first FASD Manifesto earlier this year and her work for Oshay’s Brain Domains.

FASD affects more people than autism yet is a condition that is often misdiagnosed or missed completely. While more than 400 conditions can co-occur, FASD is primarily a neurodevelopmental condition with lifelong cognitive, emotional and behavioural challenges.

The Family Voice Surrey FASD group meets on a regular basis via Zoom and provides an opportunity to share experiences and exchange advice. We also have a WhatsApp Group for day-to-day chat.
The host for the event is Sara Draycott (Waverley FVS Co -ordinator) and she is joined by Debbie Bell, a carer of children diagnosed with FASD.
