Day 33 of 99 Days to FASDay

Day 33 of 99 days to 9.9 FASDay

Day 33 of our 99 day journey and even though this myth may be difficult to believe I had a person on another social media site mention she can’t believe how many medical professionals over the years have said this about her brother. So even in 2017 there are still people who believe children will outgrow FASD.

Come back tomorrow for another FASD myth vs. fact!

  1. It IS amazing to think people still believe this. I’ve had people tell me their friend/cousin/someone had a brain injury & by doing this exercise, taking this supplement, practicing this religion, they were healed. People born affect Ted by alcohol were born with permanent brain damage. Cells are missing, cells are damaged, entire parts may be missing. Having a routine and lots of repetition may give the illusion of competence but the brain remains damaged. You can’t repair parts of a brain that are not there to begin with.

    My family tells me I’m giving up on my kids. I say I am helping them learn as much as they can to live the best life they can. I have tried ‘typical’ things. They don’t work. Setting my kids up to succeed is the best way I can parent.

    1. I hear you! I get that the brain can create new pathways and we can continue to learn but you are so correct- the brain has been damaged. I’ve had people close to me tell me the same – I’m giving up – I’m not – if something doesn’t work – we move on and find a different way or just accept that something’s may never be – that is being smart in my mind!
