Foetal Alcohol Syndrome

December 12, 2007 at 2:40 pm | Posted in Articles, Media | Leave a comment

This article describes some of the challenges involved in caring for children with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome.  Despite the difficulties experienced by children and young people with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, it is not recognised as a disability.  And therefore they are unable to access the supports they need.  The carer describes short-term memory loss,  and “fits of rage and depresssion” as just some of the challenges her two “toddlers trapped in teenagers’ bodies” experience.  It sounds as though the carer has battled hard to have the syndrome and its associated difficulties acknowledged and taken seriously.
