FASD Awareness Day with Myles Himmelreich
RECORDING OF ZOOM WORKSHOP Wednesday, September 9th, 9:30am to 12:30pm Via Zoom Meeting
September 9 is International Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Awareness Day.
The first FASD Awareness Day was September 9th, 1999. The ninth day of the ninth month was selected to represent the nine months of pregnancy. Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term used to describe the range of disabilities and diagnoses that result from drinking alcohol during pregnancy.
In Canada, more than 3,000 babies a year are born with FASD, and about 300,000 people are currently living with it.
In honour of FASD Day 2020 we are pleased to present guest speaker, Myles Himmelreich
In this session the audience will learn tools, strategies and supports that help Myles to be the successful man he is today.
He uses an interactive and engaging approach in this workshop to help the audience really feel what it is like to live with a
disability. By giving personal examples of sensory issues, processing, and executive functioning Myles hopes to encourage and inspire audiences to change the way they see and understand the word disability.
