FASD Fact: Sensory Issues

Leave a comment

Sensory issues can be a huge obstacle to individuals with FASD obtaining independence. It’s not just a case of the label at the back of the t-shirt irritating their skin. It goes much deeper, causing an abhorrence or fear of completing daily tasks like, cooking, cleaning, laundry, and hygiene. My grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome struggle daily with sensory issues, some severe enough to cause trauma. Read more in my memoir Two Decades Of Diapers, available in print or ebook from http://www.twodecadesofdiapers.com. Also available from Amazon, Kobo, and other fine ebook distributors. #FASDFACTS

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at http://www.challengedhope.com. My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS.
